DAMASCUS, SYRIA (7:00 P.M.) – Minutes ago, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) scored a huge advance on the western bank of the Euphrates River after its elite assault troops overwhelmed ISIS at numerous points adjacent to the M4 Highway in southern Deir Ezzor.

Following the liberation of nearby two villages the day before, troops under the direct command of Suheil Al-Hassan took control over Zabqri, Saalo, Al-Aliyat and Al-Tob on Monday afternoon.

Due to this development, the SAA has isolated a handful of ISIS-controlled villages between Al-Mayadeen and Deir Ezzor Airbase. This pocket is expected to be eliminated by the Tiger Forces in the coming days, sources inform Al-Masdar News.

Meanwhile, heavy clashes engulfed the provincial capital of Deir Ezzor throughout Monday as the SAA began the next stage of the ‘Big Dawn’ offensive.

According to Al-Masdar News field reporter Ibrahim Joudeh, the SAA is making rapid gains inside Deir Ezzor as we speak after breaking through ISIS’ first line of defense in the city.
