BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:40 P.M.) – Not long after lifting the siege on the Deir Ezzor Governorate, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) shifted their attention south towards the strategic military airport.

Led by the Tiger Forces and elements of the 17th Division, the Syrian Arab Army kicked off the second phase of their Deir Ezzor offensive by pushing south of the 137th Brigade Base towards the Ayyash Storage area.

According to a military source in Deir Ezzor, the Syrian Arab Army is steadily advancing south towards the Ayyash Storage area, while also building an imperative buffer-zone around the 137th Brigade Base.

More details to come as the battle develops…
