In a new video purportedly released by the Islamic State titled “Victory from Allah and an Imminent Conquest #5,” ISIS militants in Deir ez-Zor, “Wilayat al-Khayr,” Syria conduct an attack on Syrian Arab Army soldiers. The video was released on October 13 on ISIS terorrist channels and is the fifth video in the “Imminent Conquest” series. The prior videos in the series also come from Wilayat al-Khayr.
According to the Terrorism Research & Analysis Consortium, “Wilayat al-Khayr is a (Syria-Iraq) border province of the Islamic State, primarily made up of the city Deir Ezzor and its fertile surroundings. It is often referred to and translated ‘State of Goodness.’In 2014 the area was a focal point of Islamic State activity.”
In the video, ISIS militants are seen conducting raids on SAA forces in the region.
According to Al-Masdar, a recent attack by the Islamic State did not go as planned.
An attack on Al-Hawiqah, a district of Deir ez-Zor city, ended in ISIS’ defeat when a coordinated defensive manuever by the SAA and the Russian Air Force killed at least 17 militants.
It is unknown when the conduct in the above video is shown. But in early October, large numbers of SAA forces arrived in Deir Ezzor to help fortify the city.
