The Syrian Arab Army’s 104th Airborne Brigade of the Republican Guard has killed over 120 Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) militants since Wednesday on Sakr Island (Hajeewa Sakr) in the Deir Ezzor Governorate. The 104th Brigade has taken control of most of the island, with 90 percent of the territory now under their helm since the capture of a strategic checkpoint earlier this week. ISIS has been unable to reinforce their entrenched fighters in the northern part of Sakr Island as the 104th Brigade has control over the two imperative suspension bridges linking the island to the mainland.

Two tunnels were unearthed in Deir Ezzor over the last three days by the 104th Brigade; these were later destroyed by the latter after their discovery. The first was in the Old Airport District, where the 104th Brigade discovered a 30 meter tunnel stockpiled with weapons and ammunition, along with a small sleeping quarter for ISIS militants. The second tunnel was much larger, stretching out 100 meters (1.5 meters high) under the Al-‘Arfi Quarter in Deir Ezzor. The 104th Brigade destroyed the tunnel after killing 8 ISIS militants who refused to surrender. The tunnel was filled with weapons, ammunition, telecommunication devices, drugs, televisions, and dozens of boxes filled with Tawheed flags (ISIS banner).
