BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:30 P.M.) – Minutes ago, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), alongside their allies from Liwaa Fatemiyoun, scored a major advance in the eastern region of Syria after launching a big attack earlier in the day.
Led by the Tiger Forces and 5th Legion, the Syrian Arab Army liberated the large hilltop of Tal Al-Abd and the nearby Al-Hera area near the northwestern border of Deir Ezzor.
According to a military source, the Syrian Arab Army advanced from the strategic Jabal Bishiri area towards Tal Al-Abd, overrunning the Islamic State’s (ISIL) positions in the process.
At the same time, another Syrian Army unit pushing from Jabal Bishiri stormed Jabal Nazerat, Jabal Nairaman, and Jabal Admah; these sites were all liberated near the Deir-Ezzor-Sukhnah Highway.
The Syrian Arab Army is now 16 km away from Al-Shoula village and only 25 km away from lifting the siege on Deir Ezzor City.
