Clashes erupted between the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and ISIS inside the city of Deir Ezzor as the SAA is pushing towards the ISSI-held city of Mayadin southeast of the city.
The fighting was reported at al-Hamidiyah and Hawiqa as well as in other points at the frontline between the sides inside the city.
ISIS terrorists inside Deir Ezzor attacked the SAA in Deir Ezzor in order to slow down the government advance on Mayadin. This attack also contributes to the ISIS efforts along the Palmyra-Deir Ezzor highway.
However, the ISIS has not been able to achieve any gains against the SAA.
