The Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) launched a big attack in two separate parts of central Syria last night.

According to a field report from the Hama Governorate, the Islamic State terrorists targeted the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) positions in the Sa’an District of the Salamiyah countryside.

The report said the Syrian Arab Army was able to fend off the Islamic State’s assault after their reinforcements arrived in Sa’an from nearby Salamiyah city.

Shortly after this attack, the Islamic State launched another assault on the Syrian Arab Army’s positions, but this time they targeted the Badiya Al-Sham region in the Homs Governorate.

The Syrian Arab Army was once against able to foil the terrorist attack, but it forced the military to deploy more forces to the Badiya Al-Sham region.
