The Syrian Arab Army’s 104th Airborne Brigade of the Republican Guard (Harss Al-Jamhouri) – in cooperation with members of a local tribe – has captured Wadi Al-Taym after violent clashes with members of the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS).

This was an ongoing operation for the 104th Brigade, as their counterpart helped position the latter near Al-Taym late last year, following ISIS’ withdrawal from the oil fields.

Sources reported that only 9 ISIS fighters were killed during the battle; however, another 13 were captured and the rest retreated southeast. Among the identified ISIS militants killed was the Tunisian ISIS field commander “Abu Malek Al-Tounisi.”

Wadi Al-Taym is approximately 10 KM from the provincial capital of Deir Ezzor; it is located in a rural part of the province that possesses small oil fields once used as a source for economic gains.
