Syrian Army blitzes last ISIS towns between Albukamal, Mayadeen

22 November 2017 11:18

 

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) resumed their offensive in the southeastern countryside of the Deir Ezzor Governorate, today, striking the last towns occupied by the so-called Islamic State (ISIS) forces between the cities of Al-Mayadeen and Albukamal.

Led by the 4th Division on one side and the Tiger Forces on the other, the Syrian Arab Army flanked the Islamic State’s positions this morning, scoring a new advance against the terrorist group.

As a result of this advance, the Syrian Army’s 4th Division is within 15 km of reaching the Tiger Forces’ front-lines near the southeastern countryside of Al-Mayadeen.

The Syrian Army launched this operation to close the Islamic State pocket shortly after liberating Albukamal this past weekend; thus far, they seized several villages and towns near the Iraqi border-crossing.
