BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:30 P.M.) – The Islamic State’s (ISIS) last pocket in northeastern Deir Ezzor is on the verge of being cleared by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), a military source told Al-Masdar News this morning.

Units from the Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Mechanized Division and 5th Legion have been advancing at a rapid pace inside this terrorist pocket in northeast Deir Ezzor, leaving the remaining ISIS militants with little-to-no time to safely withdraw.

On Saturday, the Syrian Arab Army resumed their operations inside this pocket, liberating two towns from the Islamic State near the large village of Al-Husseiniyeh.

According to a military source, the Syrian Arab Army liberated Al-Hasan and Shaqrah after a short operation this morning along the eastern bank of the Euphrates River.

With the aforementioned towns under their control, the Syrian Arab Army only needs to liberate Safirah Tahtani and Safirah Fouqani in order to clear the entire pocket.

I can’t find those places on the map. You probably mean Al-Hussainiyah. Al-Hissan and Shaqrah were under Kurdish control. I’m really confused.

I can. They’re on the Euphrates, and in some maps colored in yellow (YPG/SDF). If there’s any truth to that is another matter altogether.
