BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:25 A.M.) – The battle for Deir Ezzor has reached an important juncture as the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) prepares to liberate the provincial capital from the remaining Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists.

With more than half of the city under their control, the Syrian Arab Army has began the phase of their operation to liberate the provincial capital.

Led by their elite Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army scored an important advance this past weekend, as the latter’s troops managed to enter the Al-Hamidiyah District of Deir Ezzor City for the first time in six years.

According to a military source, the Syrian Arab Army should be in control of the Al-Hamidiyah District within the next 48 hours.

Not to be outdone, another Tiger Forces unit is already deep inside the Al-Jubeileh District, leaving only a few neighborhoods left to liberate from the Islamic State.

Once the Al-Hamidiyah and Al-Jubeileh districts are ISIS-free, the provincial capital itself should be well on its way to being cleared of the remaining terrorists.

With great success in Dier Ezzor & Mayadeen, SAA will definitely take control of Damascus for sure. The sad part is only 50% is of Damascus area is under control of SAA and they have to take remaining 50% and this will come at a big price in terms of collateral damage to the buildings, roads & civil infrastructure and soldiers have to pay a big price with their lives. But there is no other way. Glad the seasoned Tiger Forces are there for this task. Having seen 100s of the war videos the street fighting can be very dangerous… Read more »

True, but I got the impression that the Tiger Forces are so elite that they can manage to liberate any area within a relatively short amount of time. At least they did so until now. And at some point in the future they will probably be employed in Damascus.
