BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:00 P.M.) – Electricity has fully returned to the provincial capital of Deir Ezzor after several years of war, a local reporter stated on Sunday evening.

This announcement comes just hours after Syrian Prime Minister ‘Emad Khamis visited the Euphrates River Valley to oversee the restoration of electricity to this region of eastern Syria.

The battle for Deir Ezzor lasted for much of the war, with the Syrian government forces finally expelling the last remnants of the Islamic State (ISIS) late last year.

ISIS still maintains a presence in the province; however, they are fully encircled and confined to the Iraqi border region.
