The Syrian Observatory followed during the last period Daesh attacks in the Syrian Badia (desert), and said in a report, "In light of the inability of the Russian, Iranian and the regime forces to carry out military operations within the geographical area with a large area controlled by the "Islamic State" in the Syrian desert, which extends from Jabal Abu Rajmin north-east of Palmyra to the western countryside of Deir ez-Zor, within an area of up to 4,000 square kilometers. The organization goes to the positions of the regime forces in different parts of the Syrian Badia, carrying out attacks and ambushes, not interested to its fortifications, clusters, missile and air support."
Since its official victory over Daesh in the east of the Euphrates, the organization has announced that it has delivered messages to the international community by escalating its attacks in various parts of the Syrian territory. Despite the deterioration of its operations in the areas controlled by Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), the areas of western Euphrates and the Syrian desert have witnessed an escalation during the period mentioned above on an area of about 40 thousand square kilometers, where Daesh organization attacked the forces of the regime in the area of Al keraa within the north-eastern desert of Suweida, and the aerial bombardment did not prevent Daesh mercenaries to carry out another attack on the same area, followed by another attack on the region of Bqras on the western banks of the Euphrates where the forces of the regime are existed. Daesh mercenaries had escalated their attacks against the areas of Homs and Deir ez-Zor, as they ambushed the regime forces in the southern desert of al-Mayadeen, and attacked the forces of the regime in the south-east desert of Deir ez-Zor, and perhaps the recent attack on the area of al-Kom was the most violent attack among the recent attacks, in which tens of soldiers were killed and wounded by the regime forces, preceded by an attack on the organization on the desert of al-Quriya east of Deir ez-Zor leaving dead and wounded in their ranks."
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights documented human losses during the period from 24 March this year to 20 April as at least 69 soldiers of the regime were killed.
