BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:05 P.M.) – Engineers of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) have been working around the clock to locate and remove mines and other explosive traps littered around the newly established supply route to Deir Ezzor city in a bid to fully secure it.

Footage captured by a professional camera team was released today showing army engineers carrying out the mine-clearance operation west of 137th Brigade Base, a major defense zone which protects Deir Ezzor city.

Two days ago, the Syrian Army lifted the three-year ISIS-imposed siege on Deir Ezzor by reaching forces defending the city at the 137th Brigade Base and connecting the bastion to the rest of government-held Syrian mainland.

Within 12 hours of the siege being lifted, humanitarian aid was flooded into the city by dozens of trucks which rode alongside army reinforcements.

The SAA hopes to properly secure the new supply line to city and ensure the safety of all vehicles which travel along it – to this end mine clearance is an essential operation.
