According to Navid Shahed website, The attack took place on Sunday evening in the area 50 km east of the third station in the Syrian Badia desert, SANA news agency quoted a military source as saying.
“The attack was followed by bursts of fire of 23 mm caliber cannon as five army personnel were martyred and twenty others were wounded,” the source added.
These attacks are repeatedly launched by terrorist groups on the buses on Deir Ezzor- Palmyra road as they launch such attacks from the area which is under the control of the US occupation forces in Al-Tanf area, which provides protection and support for these terrorist organizations.
Over the past months, several media reports talked about transferring hundreds of ISIl terrorists by the US occupation forces from Iraq sometimes and from the prisons they control with the QSD militia in Hasaka at other times to Al-Tanf area to train and arm them in preparation for attacking the Syrian Arab Army personnel and the vital facilities and the residential compounds in the Syrian Badia region.
