The army men, backed up by the Syrian Air Force and artillery units, pushed ISIL back from Zaqir Shamiyeh, al-Hawi and al-Hamd regions after liberating al-Shamitiyeh region on the Western bank of the Euphrates River.
In the meantime, ISIL’s counter-attacks to recapture lost lands in the region have all been repelled so far.
Relevant reports said on Tuesday that the army troops pushed ISIL terrorists back from more strategic hills and regions in the Eastern province of Deir Ezzur and inflicted major losses on the militants.
The army soldiers engaged in fierce clashes with ISIL and imposed control over several hills and Zahrah al-Mouhasan.
ISIL suffered heavy casualties and its military hardware sustained major damage in the attacks.
