BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:30 P.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIS) suffered a major setback this week when the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their allies liberated a large chunk of their Badiyya pocket in west Deir Ezzor.

Led by their 5th Corps, the Syrian Arab Army was able to break into the Islamic State’s large pocket in western Deir Ezzor and liberate a significant chunk of territory from the terrorist group.

According to a military report from the Deir Ezzor Goverorate, the Syrian Army and their allies have pushed the Islamic State forces back more than 60 kilometers away from the strategic city of Al-Mayadeen.

The Syrian military is now attempting to drive through the Islamic State’s defenses and split this large pocket in the Syrian Desert.

Good news, this pocket must desapegar very soon thanks to strong Russia air support and protection. Congratulation, Syria-Russia-Iran-Hezbolah fighters.
