This is coolbert:
Even with the heat is applied from all sides more or less simultaneously, the Islamic State combatants continue to exist and even thrive!
As was the case from only several months ago from an Internet article by Stijn Mitzer and Joost Oliemans.
"Another One Bites the Dust: Major arms depot falls to Islamic State"
"Just over a year after capturing Deir ez-Zor's Ayyash weapon depot in the largest arms haul of the Syrian Civil War, the Islamic State has once again got its hands on massive quantities of ammunition captured from a storage depot in Deir ez-Zor . . . Each of these depots provided its capturers with a wide array of weaponry, vehicles and ammunition that could immediately be used against their former owners, a major blow to other factions fighting for control over Syria."
Just go see the images, that amount of war munitions as captured intact extraordinary. Perhaps not since the time of Spartacus over two-thousand years ago has a military force armed itself in such a manner and extent!!
Also see previous blog entries the topic of which is the siege of Deir ez-Zor:
