Syrian Army Continues to Crush ISIL Militants in Deir Ezzur
The Syrian army troops stormed the ISIL gatherings in the neighborhoods of al-Roshdiyeh, al-Jabileh and al-Mowadhefin, killed or wounded many of the terrorists and destroyed their weapons and military equipment.
“The ISIL left behind scores of the dead and injured members and fled the battlefields to evade more casualties,” a source in the city said.
“The army also continued to advance against the ISIL in the village of al-Baqaliyeh and pushed the militant back from al-Ruwad residential units,” he added.
Sources said earlier today that the Syrian army alongside popular forces have pushed back the ISIL from more territories in the Eastern province of Deir Ezzur and retook full control over more strategic heights after a heavy battle.
“The ISIL withdrew forces from its positions near al-Ruwad heights after the army and the National Defense Forces stormed them and killed many of the terrorists,” the army said.
“Al-Ruwad heights and its surroundings are now under full control of the Syrian government forces,” the army added.
The Syria armed forces have been heavily pounding the ISIL positions across the province in recent weeks.
