The Syrian Army, backed by allied forces, continues to overrun the Islamic State in eastern Syria, recaptures strategic mountains to the south of Deir Ezzor city.

According to a military source, Army troops simultaneously attacked Thardeh mountains from two axes; the Panorama to the west and al-Taym Oil Field to the south-west.

Thardeh mountains – which consists of three major hilltops – bears a strategic importance for it serves as the main defense line for the Airbase.

“By recapturing the mountain, the Deir Ezzor Airbase – which has been under ISIS siege for nearly 9 months – will be operational again,” the same source added.

On September 17, 2016, the US-coalition bombed the Syrian Army troops stationed in Thadeh Mountain where dozens of soldiers have been tragically killed and wounded. This had resulted in the Islamic States jihadists taking over the mountain range.

Meanwhile, a unit of the Syrian Army’s elite Tiger Forces broke into the ISIS-held districts of Al-Baghiliyah and Aiyash located in the western flanks of Deir Ezzor.

At least 20 ISIS jihadists have been killed, 2 tanks and 2 pickup trucks destroyed so far in this offensive.

The Syrian government forces need to cross the Euphrates river now and start liberating Eastern Deir Ezzur and especially the oil and gas fields there. Eastern Deir Ezzur belongs to the Syrian state not the US or their Kurdish proxies.

Good News all around. Now its time to start shooting down American copters that are flying in to Deirazour at night to pick CIA agents in ISIS control rooms.
