It is claimed that Seven soldiers were killed in the attack launched by the IS terrorists in the Deir Al-Zor province in eastern Syria. A daily in the Gulf carried this report. The Assad regime and military has not reacted in this matter. It is claimed that the terrorist organisation IS, involved in terrorist activities around the globe, is once again gaining strength in Syria. A year ago, existing US President Donald Trump had announced that the influence of IS was finished in Syria. At the same time, he announced the decision to withdraw US military from Syria. It was being said that the IS activities had stopped after the US action. But looking at the reports received from Syria over the last ten days, IS is raising its head again in Syria.
40 Syrian soldiers had been killed in an attack launched by the IS terrorists on a bus carrying the soldiers, in the Deir ez-Zor province in eastern Syria, in the last week. IS terrorists accepted the responsibility of the attack. The security agencies of both Iraq and Syria were on alert as the attack was carried out near the border between the two countries.
