BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:10 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has liberated another district in Deir Ezzor after a fierce battle with the so-called Islamic State (ISIS) in the central part of the city.
Led by the Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army stormed the central part of the Al-Jubeileh District, today, scoring a big a advance after breaking through the Islamic State’s main line of defense.
Within hours of launching the attack, the Syrian Arab Army was able to liberate all of Al-Jubeileh, marking the first time since 2012 that the government has had full control of this large district.
In addition to liberating Al-Jubeileh, the Syrian Arab Army has also captured Central Park, which is located at the northern corridor of the Al-Hamidiyah Quarter.
The Syrian Arab Army is now attempting to expel ISIS from Al-Hamidiyah and Sheikh Yassine.
