Hezbollah infantry [described as such by the # 3 man in the FBI] further assault on Deir Ez-Zor stymied!

"DEBKAfile's military sources report exclusively on Thursday that Hizballah troops account for the majority of the pro-Syrian forces fighting in southeastern Syria during the last week, especially in the area of Deir ez-Zour. The Hizballah forces have run into strong resistance from ISIS forces and have not been able to defeat them."
