Photos- Syrian Army reinforcements arrive in Deir Ezzor
A significant number of reinforcements from the Al-Hasakah Governorate arrived in the nearby desert province of Deir Ezzor on Wednesday to participate in the Syrian Arab Army’s latest offensive against the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS).
The reinforcements did not arrive alone; instead, they were joined by the prominent field commander, Major General Issam Zahreddine of the Syrian Arab Army’s 104th Airborne Brigade of the Republican Guard.
A military source in the Deir Ezzor Governorate told Al-Masdar News on Wednesday night that General Zahreddine played a pivotal role during the mobilization of the reserve forces in the Al-Hasakah Governorate.
These Syrian Army reinforcements arrived shortly after General Mohammad Khaddour was replaced as the commander of the east Syria front.
