BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:05 P.M.) – Elite forces of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) have reached to within fifty kilometers of Deir Ezzor city after capturing a key town along the al-Sukhnah to Deir Ezzor (M20) highway.
In recent hours, the Syrian Army – led by the elite Tiger Forces – liberated the town of Haribshah directly en-route to Deir Ezzor city via the eastern direction.
This advance comes not long after the Syrian troops took the strategic mountain chain of Bishiri to the north of Haribshah.
With these latest advances (Bishri and Haribshah), some Syrian War analysts are now claiming that the battle to lift the siege on pro-government forces in Deir Ezzor city has begun in earnest.
