BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:00 P.M.) – The strategic city of Al-Mayadeen was liberated by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) last week and since its liberation, the Syrian military has advanced deep into the Islamic State’s (ISIS) heartland in the Deir Ezzor Governorate.

Drone footage of liberated Al-Mayadeen was posted by a Syrian media group on Thursday; it shows the city and the remains of the Islamic State.

The Syrian Arab Army is now working their way to the Al-‘Umar Oil Fields, which are considered the Islamic State’s most important revenue stream inside Syria.

Once Al-‘Umar and the provincial capital are liberated, the Syrian Arab Army will turn their attention to the terrorist group’s stronghold of Albukamal, which is located along the border of Iraq.
