Syrian Army liberates new sites to reach important area in Deir Ezzor
The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has liberated more ground in the Deir Ezzor Governorate, today, after a series of clashes with the so-called Islamic State (ISIL) near the large hilltop of Tal Sannouf.
Led by the Tiger Forces and 17th Reserve Division, the Syrian Arab Army attacked the last ISIL positions before the Ayyash Storage area; this resulted in a fierce battle that lasted for most of the afternoon.
According to a military source in Deir Ezzor, the Syrian Arab Army has liberated the Gas Factory and Raqqa Bridge in northern Deir Ezzor, killing and wounding a large number of Islamic State terrorists in the process.
The military source added that the Syrian Arab Army has now reached the important Ayyash Storage area, which was captured by the Islamic State during their 2015 Spring offensive.
