BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:50 P.M.) – Syrian Arab Army forces operating in southwestern Deir Ezzor Governorate are working over time against ISIS – being neither hindered by bad weather or the hours of darkness – today pushing the terrorist group out of another one of its key strongholds on the western bank of the Euphrates River.

Following their liberation of the town of Makhan yesterday, Syrian pro-government forces have since driven further downstream and now secured after almost a day of clashes the town of Al-Quirriyah.

ISIS had intended to turn Al-Quriyyah into a fortress, but with the speed of the Syrian Army advance, failed to set up sufficient defenses in time.

By this advance the Syrian Army has reached the strategic town of Ash-Sharah, yet another ISIS stronghold on the western bank of the Euphrates, and is preparing to storm the settlement from its northern and western gates.

The advance by the Syrian Army is being heavily backed-up Russian warplanes that, in their own state of frenzy, are smashing with precision strikes every ISIS position, gathering and movement spotted on the road between Ash-Sharah and Abu Kamal.

Well done! Only 65 km to Abu Kamal and the power of ISIS will end in inhabited areas in Syria.
