BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:40 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army has made another big advance on the eastern shore of the Euphrates River today, pushing ISIS militants from a key town near Kurdish lines.

Several hours ago, vanguard forces of the Syrian Army liberated the strategic town of al-Husayniyah after 24 hours of clashes with ISIS militants. The settlement is located to the northeast of Deir Ezzor city.

By this advance, Syrian Army forces have cemented the siege imposed on Islamic State militants inside Deir Ezzor and de facto blocked any further attempt by Kurdish-led militias to expand southwest of the Deir Ezzor industrial zone.

According to Al-Masdar News journalist Ibrahim Joudeh, the next target for Syrian Army troops operating on the eastern Euphrates bank is the town of Janenah.
