BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:21 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army has fully liberated the city of Al-Mayadeen in Deir Ezzor province which until a few hours ago had been the Islamic State’s de facto capital.

According to military sources exclusive to Al-Masdar News, the Syrian Army achieved full control over all districts within the city of Al-Mayadeen early this morning.

The Syrian Army operation to expel ISIS from Al-Mayadeen started about one week ago and saw the army deploy units of the elite Tiger Forces Division.

Whilst it is still unclear how exactly ISIS forces in Al-Mayadeen were defeated, it appears that most of the jihadist defenders abandoned the city, fleeing south prior to be encircled several days ago and/or crossing to the eastern shore of the Euphrates River.

I am sure that any ISIS that fled South will be carefully monitored in case of a fast attack in the narrow SAA supply lines in that area.

Nonsense. And this “Al-Mayadeen in Deir Ezzor province which until a few hours ago had been the Islamic State’s de facto capital” – is b/s. ISIS capital is Raqqa. SAA propaganda is shameless.
