More Terrorists Lay Down Arms, Surrender to Gov’t Forces in Eastern Syria
According to the statement, a total number of 54 ISIL gunmen laid down their arms and surrendered to the government troops.
The news comes after a local source said that a growing number of militants from the ISIL are surrendering to Syrian government forces in Deir Ezzur.
A well-informed local source said on Saturday that a number of ISIL terrorists laid down arms and surrendered to the Syrian Army troops in the Eastern city of Deir Ezzur after the devastating advances of the pro-government forces in the region.
“A number of ISIL terrorists have surrendered to the government forces,” the source said, without specifying why the surrender took place.
The source added that the terrorists that were holding parts of the city were significantly weakened and were unable to continue resistance against the army offensive.
