The Syrian Arab Army (SAA), alongside Raqqawi tribesmen, are preparing to storm the Islamic State’s (ISIL) last stronghold along the Sukhnah-Deir Ezzor, a military source told Al-Masdar News on Thursday night .
Led by the Tiger Forces and 800th Regiment of the Republican Guard, the Syrian Arab Army reached the outskirts of Al-Shoulah, Thursday, following the complete liberation of the nearby town of Kabawjib, which is located west of the Islamic State’s stronghold.
According to the military source in Deir Ezzor, the Syrian Arab Army will begin storming Al-Shoulah in the coming hours and should have full control of the town by the end of the week, if not by Saturday morning.
Once Al-Shoulah is liberated, the Syrian Arab Army will turn their attention to Al-Malha, which is the last town along the Sukhnah-Deir Ezzor Highway.
