#Syria|Opposition kills 25 ISIS militants in eastern Qalamoun

Twenty-five ISIS militants were killed by opposition fighters as they repelled the organization’s attack on Bier al-Afa’i and al-Ishara Mountain, Orient News correspondent Mohamad Abdulrahaman reported.


The area, in which the attack was repelled, was dubbed “death area” because of the big number of militants which ISIS lost, as the organization tried before to advance on al-Ishara Mountain, but its attempts were foiled as well.


ISIS is trying to control al-Ishara Mountain because it is the last high area in al-Qalamoun Mountains, and because controlling it will lead to controlling al-Batra Mountain; therefore, ISIS would control the whole eastern Qalamoun, according to observers.
