Remainder of ISIS terrorists prime target for airstrikes in Desert: map
Thousands of ISIS terrorists are now trapped inside the Syrian Desert after being expelled from the western bank of the Euphrates River, a military source in Damascus told Al-Masdar News on Thursday morning.
According to the Syrian military source, the Islamic State has moved most of their forces to this vast desert region in the western countryside of Deir Ezzor, as they anticipate losing the eastern bank of the Euphrates and their last pocket in Iraq.
The ISIS forces are now confined to a 7,200 square kilometer area in western Deir Ezzor that has limited resources, while also being a prime target for airstrikes.
From this large pocket, ISIS will likely wreck havoc on the Sukhnah-Deir Ezzor Road in order to constantly force the government to close this highway.
