Islamic State reportedly launches fresh attack in Syria's Hama

PanARMENIAN.Net - The Islamic State forces trapped in the ever-shrinking east Hama pocket (also called the Uqayribat pocket) have launched fresh attacks – at least according to the terrorist group’s own account – in the direction of Salamiyah city against pro-government troops, Al-Masdar News reports.

The apparent attacks by the IS group come despite the exceptionally depraved strategic position the terrorist group finds itself in throughout the region.

IS media has released a handful of pictures showing its fighters attacking pro-government forces with a range of light fire support weapons including 81-mm medium mortars, medium-sized machine guns and an AGS-19 grenade launcher.

As far as confirmed reports suggest, the militants have made virtually no gains at all.
