Syrian government forces have repelled an ISIS attack on the villages of Marat and Mazlum and once again advanced on Khusham village on the eastern bank of the Euphrates River, near Deir Ezzor city.

According to pro-government sources, government troops, led by the 5th Assault Corps’ ISIS Hunters, established a full control over the village.

If true, government forces took control of a key road linking up the area held by US-backed forces and the Omar oil fields on the eastern bank of the Euphrates.
