BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:00 A.M.) – A large number of Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists were killed this week during the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) major advance across the Badiya Al-Sham region of Deir Ezzor.
Led by their 5th Legion, the Syrian Arab Army was able to liberate more than 2,000 square kilometers of territory inside this part of the Badiya Al-Sham region, which is located just west of Al-Mayadeen city.
As a result of this advance, the Syrian Army was able to fully secure Al-Mayadeen city and force the Islamic State to fully retreat to the vast desert region between west Deir Ezzor and east Homs.
According to a military source in Deir Ezzor, the Syrian Army was able to kill more than 40 Islamic State militants during their short operation against the terrorist forces inside this desert region.
The source added that the Syrian Army is now working to clear the last remnants of the Islamic State to the west of Al-Mayadeen.
