Syrian Army advances on large town south of Deir Ezzor Airport

16 September 2017 11:55

 

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) is steadily making progress south of the Deir Ezzor Airport after successfully expelling the so-called Islamic State (ISIL) from the town of Al-Muri’iyah.

Led by detachments from the Republican Guard, the Syrian Arab Army pushed further south of Al-Muri’iyah, today, advancing towards the northern entrance of Mohassan, which is a large town located south of Deir Ezzor City.

According to some reports from the Syrian military, their forces have reached the outskirts of Mohassan; however, these claims may be a bit premature at this stage of the battle.

Should the Syrian Army liberate Mohassan in the coming weeks, then their forces will only be a mere 20 km away from Al-Mayadeen, which is the Islamic State’s de facto capital in Syria.
