Field sources in Eastern Syria reported on Thursday that the Syrian army has sent fresh forces and equipment to its positions near Albu Kamal in Eastern Deir Ezzur and at the border with Iraq.
They added that the Syrian army’s convoys have been sent from different parts of the country, including Homs and Hama, to Eastern Deir Ezzur in the past 2 weeks, saying that the army is preparing for extensive military operations to cleanse the ISIL terrorists from Badiyeh of Albu Kamal amid the latter’s increased offensives on army positions.
Meantime, the Syrian air force launched airstrikes on ISIL positions and moves near Awiraz dam, areas near the T3 station and the administrative borders of Deir Ezzur with the Eastern Badiyeh of Homs, killing and wounding several terrorists and destroying their military equipment.
