AlMasdarNews reportsThe Syrian Arab Army (SAA) made several important gains in the Deir Ezzor Governorate on Friday, liberating a number sites from the Islamic State (ISIS) at the cemetery, factories area, and landfill.

 

Backed by Syrian and Russian airstrikes, the Al-Qassem Group and 104th Airborne Brigade of the Republican Guard barreled through the Islamic State’s defenses on Friday, cutting off the terrorist group’s supply lines to the cemetery.

 

Meanwhile at the Deir Ezzor Landfill, the Al-Qassem Group and 123rd Brigade finally established a strong presence at this site after several days of fighting with the Islamic State terrorist present in this area.

 

As a result of their recent gains, the Syrian Arab Army has managed to end the Islamic State’s assault on Deir Ezzor Airport’s northern flank, leaving only the hills overlooking this area under the terrorist group’s control.
