ISIS has launched its fiercest assault on Syrian Army positions in Deir ez-Zor, the seventh largest city in Syria and the largest in the eastern part of the Arab Republic.
To make matters worse American special forces have invaded Syria last week to set up road blocks between Deir ez-Zor and Mosul in Iraq to control the flows of arms and ammunition needed to fight off the Syrian Army.
The ISIS attack was aimed to cut off, the besieged Syrian government enclave in the city of Deir ez-Zor, from a nearby military airbase in a battle that has killed dozens of fighters. The London-based, Syrian Observatory for Human Rights described the fighting as the fiercest in the eastern occupied city for a year.
Deir ez-Zor Airport is a under-developed domestic and international terminal and important hub mostly connecting with Damascus and destinations in the Gulf region. The Iranian Air Force has deployed aircraft and special forces to the airport in order to protect the city against an American invasion, planned to annex and occupy Deir ez-Zor.
The city of Deir ez-Zor is also build along the mighty Euphrates River basin, heading towards Iraq. The fresh water supply is used to feed the agricultural industry, what makes livelihood possible in the region. Now all food resources have been destroyed by ISIS, in order to starve the Syrian people to death.
ISIS has been kidnapping children and forcing them to join jihadist training camps and kill captured enemy fighters in Raqqa, Deir ez-Zor and Mosul in Iraq.
ISIS also established a vast trade in human organs, which they cut out from the bodies of their hostages, for them to be sold to Israel, which owns the world’s largest trade enterprise in donor organs.
