BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:40 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) are involved in a heated race to capture the strategic border-city of Albukamal in eastern Deir Ezzor.

With both forces making significant progress in the Deir Ezzor Governorate these past 48 hours, the Islamic State (ISIL) now finds themselves in a world of trouble, as they struggle to hold their ground in the province.

On Monday, the Syrian Arab Army scored a big advance near the Deir Ezzor Airport, liberating the 17th Hills that are located just southwest of the Liwaa Tameen Base.

Not to be outdone by the Syrian Army, the Syrian Democratic Forces managed to capture a large chunk of territory in the northern part of the provincial capital, taking control of the strategic 113th Brigade Base and parts of the Al-Salihiyah District.

In the coming days, the two forces will attempt to further their advances in Deir Ezzor, as they attempt to block one another’s path to the city of Albukamal.
