BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:35 P.M.) – Syrian Coalition-led forces have made a new series of key advances against Islamic State terrorists in the province of Deir Ezzor amid a renewed push to capture a strategic region on east shore of the Euphrates River.

On Tuesday, pro-Kurdish and pro-Coalition sources reported that US-backed forces in east Syria captured two villages from ISIS within the strategic and heavily contested Shaitat tribal region, these being Abu Hardub and Al-Nabayi.

Reports go on to state that at least 17 Islamic State fighters died as a result of clashes between the terrorist group and Coalition-led forces for the villages.

At the present time, and for at least the last three weeks now, the Shaitat tribal region – nestled along the east bank of the Euphrates in the province of Deir Ezzor – has witnessed exceptionally heavy fighting between ISIS and US-backed Arab and Kurdish militias as the latter attempts to wrest control of the the region’s main town, Abu Hammam.
