Siege of Deir Ezzor Airport almost lifted as Syrian government forces continue to advance
The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continued their military operations in the western part of the Deir Ezzor Governorate on Wednesday, targeting the Islamic State’s (ISIS) positions in the factory area and provincial cemetery.
Backed by Russian airstrikes, the Syrian Arab Army’s “Al-Qassem Group” stormed the factories area on Wednesday, liberating several sites from the Islamic State terrorists.
As a result of this advance, the Syrian Arab Army was able to end the full siege of the Deir Ezzor Airport; however, they still cannot access their supply road due to the Islamic State’s fire control over this road.
Meanwhile, at the Deir Ezzor cemetery, the Syrian Arab Army launched another powerful attack against the Islamic State terrorists, killing and wounding a dozen militants during Wednesday’s assault.
In the coming days, the Syrian Arab Army will face another big attack from the Islamic State forces, so they will have to lift this siege as soon as possible.
