Syrian Army completes landmark Euphrates crossing in Deir Ezzor


A special forces unit from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) completed an operation to cross the Euphrates River near the recently freed city of Deir-ez-Zor, Monday.

Footage shows engineering divisions employing a pontoon to enable passage for troops and equipment over to the eastern banks, consolidating their position and allowing for access to the northern sector of Deir-ez-Zor, where the self-proclaimed ISIL recently lost their three-year hold.

Soldiers were able to remove ISIL terorists and free several villages within a few hours.
