The Syrian Arab Army’s 104th Airborne Brigade of the Republican Guard (Harss Al-Jamhouri) – in coordination with tribal fighters – has captured the Salt Farms (Mazra’a Al-Malah) from the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) after a series of attacks by the former near the city of Mohassan.

The Salt Farms are located 20km south of the provincial capital of Deir Ezzor; its proximity to the strategic city of Mohassan make this area an imperative launching point for the SAA’s 104th Brigade in the southern part of the province.

According to a military source from the 104th Brigade, at least 20 enemy combatants from ISIS were killed during the capture of the Salt Farms, including “Abu Bilaal Al-Tounisi” (Tunisian), “Abu Yousif Al-Masri” (Egyptian), Hussein Da’oud Jawad, Thabet ‘Umar Al-Waleed, ‘Abdullah ‘Izat Al-‘Abdullah (Palestinian), Qusay ‘Ali Al-Yasseen, and Hadi ‘Issa Al-Hamwi.

At Sakr Island (Haweeja Sakr), the 104th Brigade has restarted operations in this vital area located southeast of Deir Ezzor, attacking ISIS positions at the southwestern entrance of the Al-‘Alaaleesh Quarter.

Firefights were also reported in the city of Deir Ezzor at the following areas: Kanamat, Al-Jaffra, Al-Muri’iyat, Al-Jubeileh, ‘Ayyash, and Sheikh Yasseen.
