Syrian Army troops continued to beat back ISIL terrorists from more key positions Southwest of Deir Ezzur, paving the ground for the removal of terrorists’ siege on the city’s military airport.

The army men, backed up by the Syrian and Russian fighter jets, stormed ISIL’s positions in Deir Ezzur’s cemetery, taking control over several key positons in the region that connects the city to the besieged airbase.
