The Army men launched a fresh phase of Valfajr 3 operation in Southwestern Deir Ezzur and managed to lay siege on the T2 oil pumping station, seizing control over the station and the road to the station.
In the meantime, the army’s artillery units shelled heavily ISIL’s movements and positions in T2 oil pumping station, inflicting several casualties on the terrorists. The army’s Valfajr 3 operation is aimed at liberating Albu Kamal from ISIL occupation.
Other sources said that ISIL’s defense lines in the town of al-Asharaha South-East of the town of al-Mayadeen have come under heavy attacks by the army’s artillery units.
Meantime, ISIL retreated from a small but strategic town in Eastern Deir Ezzur on Monday after sustaining more than 20 casualties in Syrian army offensive.
The Syrian Army troops pushed ISIL back from the town of al-Qouriyeh in Eastern Dier Ezzur, killing and wounding a number of terrorists.
A field source reported that the army has killed over 20 ISIL terrorists and destroyed five vehicles thus far en route to liberating several areas in and around Al-Qouriyeh.
The army’s primary objective now is to reach the nearby town of al-Asharaha, which is an ISIL stronghold with a large command-and-control center.
