For the first time in 11 days, the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) did not launch an assault on the Deir Ezzor Military Airport, citing “bad weather” as the reason for their hesitancy to attack. As a result of the calm around the Military Airport, technicians were able to repair the downed phone lines and the internet connection to the base; this allowed for Syrian Arab Army (SAA) soldiers to contact their loved ones and post updates on social media sites about their physical and mental status.

The Syrian Arab Army’s 104th Airborne Brigade of the Republican has reportedly killed over 70 ISIS fighters during a violent firefight that took place near Central Park on Sakr Island (Hajeewa Sakr). According to a source from the 104th Brigade, most of the fighters could not be identified because they were either charred from the multiple airstrikes that hit their positions or they possessed no documents. The source also added that 31 ISIS fighters were captured and/or wounded on the battlefront.
