BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:55 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) had a very successful 48 hours over the weekend, liberating several areas that were previously occupied by the so-called Islamic State (ISIS) in the Deir Ezzor Governorate.

To begin the weekend, the Syrian Arab Army’s elite Tiger Forces liberated the strategic it Al-Mayadeen, which has served as the Islamic State’s de facto capital for several months.

Following the liberation of Al-Mayadeen, the Syrian Arab Army captured several towns under the Islamic State’s control near the provincial capital, including Al-Salahiyah and Al-Husseiniyeh.

On Sunday, the Syrian Arab Army’s Tiger Forces continued their advance near Al-Mayadeen, liberating new areas surrounding this imperative city.

With Al-Mayadeen liberated, the Syrian Arab Army will now shift their attention to the provincial capital, where they hope to clear the last areas under the Islamic State’s control.
