BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:50 P.M.) – Minutes ago, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) liberated a new oil field in the Deir Ezzor countryside to close-in on the provincial capital.

Led by the Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army took full control of the Al-Kharrata Oil Field after overrunning the Islamic State’s (ISIL) front-lines in the western countryside of Deir Ezzor.

The Al-Kharrata Oil Field is only 15 km away from the 137th Artillery Base in western Deir Ezzor; it has been the target of several attacks by the Islamic State in the past.

At the same time another Syrian Army unit stormed the Islamic State’s last positions west of Al-Shoula, resulting in their subsequent advance to the town’s outskirts.

The Syrian Arab Army’s rapid advance has forced the Islamic State withdraw from a large part of western Deir Ezzor, leaving much of this desert region absent of terrorist combatants.

According to Wikimapia, Al Kharrata Oil Field has six parts, groups of oil wells, and five of them were marked to be under SAA control already. Thus it seems that now “SAA completely liberates Al Kharrata Oil Field”, and the last liberated part is the closest one to Deir Ez Zor. Thus the official distance was cut from 17 kilometers to 15.

They need to liberate the Oman / Omar field, that is the big one = a lot more coffers in the bank and so on and so on.
