‘Takes gas field’

17 Jul, 2014

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says ISIS has seized the Sha’ar gas field east of Homs, killing at least 90 of the men guarding it and losing 21 of its fighters in a “wide assault” from several directions. It says a further 270 guards, government forces and militia members loyal to Assad are missing, taken prisoner, wounded or killed. Observatory director Rami Abdurrahman:

Since the beginning of the year there have been clashes between the Islamic State and the regime in some areas, but these are the largest.
