Tribal fighters under the command of Brigadier General Issam Zahreddine of the Syrian Arab Army’s 104th Airborne Brigade of the Republican Guard (Harss Al-Jamhouri) have captured the strategic northern entrance to the city of Mohassan in the Deir Ezzor Governorate, after fierce clashes with the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS).

According to a military source, the tribal fighters carried out this attack in conjunction with the 104th Brigade’s assault on the ISIS militants entrenched in the Jubeileh Quarter of Deir Ezzor – their attack resulted in the death of 19 enemy combatants, including a number of foreigners.

The 104th Brigade pounded the ISIS militants in the east Jubeileh Quarter, killing scores of enemy combatants and destroying 3 armored vehicles on Thursday morning. The 104th Brigade is in control of 80 percent of Jubeileh, with only the eastern sector left to capture.

In northern Deir Ezzor, the 104th Brigade continued their aggressive offensive at the village of ‘Ayyash, targeting the ISIS militants holed-up in the eastern district.
