Syrian government forces have seized a large warehouse belonging to ISIS in the province of Deir Ezzor, according to a video released by the country’s defense ministry on March 28. The warehouse is located in the village of Mahkan north of the town of Mayadin.

According to some reports, the warehouse was a part of the factory used by ISIS to produce poisonous substances.

Appearing reports about ISIS warehouses, weapon depots and shelters appearing from the province of Deir Ezzor show a lack of security efforts conducted by government forces in the province.

A wide network of warehouses and weapon depots still allows ISIS sleeper cells to operate in the area. This network has to be detected and destroyed if government forces seek to improve the security situation in the area soon.
