ISIL uprouted from key sites east of Euphrates
Syrian Army forces have cleared so-called Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIS/ISIL) from two key towns along the eastern shore of the Euphrates River in Deir Ezzor province.
According to a Syrian army commander, “Syrian troops carried out an operation to encircle As Salhiyah. We now completely control this village – the biggest center of ISIS in this region. During the inspection of the village, we found warehouses for weapons and ammunition.”
