As a result of the Islamic State ambush, the Syrian Arab Army and their allies from the National Defense Forces (SDF) suffered over ten casualties in the Badiya al-Sham region southeast of Palmyra city.

Tuesday’s attack by the Islamic State marked the first time since the Syrian Arab Army carried out their Deir Ezzor desert operation that the terrorist group has carried out an assault of this size.

The Islamic State sleeper cells have have been operating in the desert region near Palmyra for several years now, but since they lost most of their territories inside Syria, they have been limited to this area because of the plethora of caves.
