The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) has had a rough 48 hours in the Deir Ezzor Governorate, as they were attacked by three different air forces and the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) all around this desert province in Syria’s eastern countryside.

On Tuesday morning, the terrorist group woke up to the tumultuous roar of the U.S. fighter jets pounding their positions at the imperative cities of Al-Mayadeen, Abukamaal, and Albulayal in eastern Deir Ezzor; these airstrikes reportedly killed more than 30 enemy combatants from the terrorist group.

Not to be outdone, the French Air Force launched their own airstrikes above Al-Mayadeen and Abukamaal, killing an estimated 50 enemy combatants from ISIS before they concentrated on the Iraqi province of Al-‘Anbar.

When the Anti-ISIS Coalition was not flying above the aforementioned cities in east Deir Ezzor, they were punishing the terrorist group with airstrikes along the Mayadeen-Deir Ezzor Road and the Raqqa-Deir Ezzor Highway.

In addition to their numerous aerial attacks on ISIS’ positions, the Syrian Arab Army responded to the terrorist group’s repeated attempts to infiltrate into the Deir Ezzor Military Airport with an assault of their own in the village of Al-Muri’iyah and its nearby farms.

The Syrian Arab Army’s 137th Artillery Brigade of the 17th Reserve Division – in coordination with the 104th Airborne Brigade of the Republican Guard, the National Defense Forces (NDF), and the Shaytat Tribesmen – carried out a number of attacks inside the districts of Al-Rashidiyah, Al-Jubeileh, Al-Amal, Al-Kanamat, and Al-Haweeqa; this resulted in the death of more than 75 enemy combatants in the last 48 hours.

The only reason they are attacking these “ISIS-held” highways is to destroy them and hinder the movement of Syrian/Russian troops trying to recapture the area.
