Major development: Syrian Army reaches ISIS capital
Syrian Arab Army (SAA) reached the outer suburbs of Al-Mayadeen city in Deir Ezzor after steadily advancing along the Mayadeen-Deir Ezzor Highway today.
Led by the Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army was able to reach Al-Mayadeen, today, after liberating Qala’at Al-Rahbah to the north of the city.
Some reports are now claiming the Syrian Army has reached the Al-Mayadeen Market and Grain Silos; however, this is still not confirmed by the military.
Al-Mayadeen was named the Islamic State’s de facto capital since they have all but lost their former capital in the Al-Raqqa Governorate.
