While the Russian Air Force continues to pound ISIS in rural Deir Ezzor, the Syrian Arab Army is making steady gains in the terrorist group’s capital of Al-Mayadeen.
A military source told Al-Masdar News this morning that at least half of Al-Mayadeen is under the control of the Syrian Army.
Intense clashes are ongoing at the city-center, with the Syrian Army still pushing their way through the terrorist group’s last defenses in Al-Mayadeen.
