BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:00 P.M.) – Earlier today, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched a fresh assault near the provincial capital of the Deir Ezzor Governorate, targeting the Islamic State’s (ISIS) last positions at the large island of Hawijat Kati.

Led by the Tiger Forces and 4th Division, the Syrian Arab Army scored a small advance at Hawijat Kati after striking the Islamic State’s positions at the northeastern part of the island.

While the advance was small, it proved enough to get the Islamic State’s field commanders back to the negotiating table so that the Syrian Army can draw up terms for the surrender of Hawijat Kati.

The Syrian Army has repeatedly demanded that the Islamic State surrender Hawijat Kati; however, the terrorist group continues to reject the terms.

With nowhere to retreat and their main dock on the verge of capture, the Islamic State has no other feasible option but to accept terms of surrender.
