Syria: Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) terrorist group launches several attacks across Syria
The month of May has witnessed a resurgence in Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) activities across Syria, with the terrorist group launching constant attacks against both the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).
Over the course of May, the Islamic State has taken advantage of the coronavirus crisis to launch attacks on installations, economic sites, and military posts, often engaging in brief battles before disappearing into the vast Syrian desert.
Most recently, the Islamic State has carried out a string of attacks inside the Badiya Al-Sham region of eastern Homs and the Al-Jazeera region of eastern Syria (Al-Hasakah and Deir Ezzor).
According to a military source from the Syrian Army, these Islamic State attacks have forced the SAA’s high command to redeploy forces to a number of fronts to help deal with these attacks.
