Following the previous advances in the Deir Ezzor countryside, the Syrian Arab Army libearted the town of Mohassan and the nearby villages of Abu Al-Layl, Al-Abd and Abu Amr from ISIS on the western bank of the Euphrates. So, government troops secured the entire Euphrates bank between Deir Ezor and Mayadin.

Now, the SAA is focusing on combating ISIS in the industrial area and Saqr Island.

Experts also expect that government forces will soon launch a river crossing operation in order to reach the Omar oil fields located on the  eastern bank of the Euphrates east of Deir Ezzor city.
