The biggest Islamic State attack in months on Syrian government areas of the eastern town of Deir Ez-Zor Saturday has left dozens dead. Syrian warplanes hit back at ISIUS positions. Much of this province which borders Iraq and more than half the town are in ISIS hands and has been under government military siege for two years.
Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
