BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:05 P.M.) – Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) uncovered a large web of tunnels belonging to the so-called Islamic State (IS) this week while combing through the liberated city of Albukamal in southeast Deir Ezzor.

The large web of tunnels led from Albukamal to the city’s outskirts and several other sites in southeast Deir Ezzor; this allowed for several Islamic State terrorists to flee before losing the entire area to the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their allies.

The IRGC unit placed explosives inside the tunnels and detonated the bombs in order to destroy entire web so that the Islamic State could no longer use them.

The video footage shows above shows the tunnels the IRGC uncovered this week in Albukamal – the Syrian Army still believes several other tunnels exist in this part of Deir Ezzor.
