BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:40 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) liberated the strategic town of Al-Shoulah last week after a short battle with the so-called Islamic State (ISIL) terror organization along the Sukhnah-Deir Ezzor Highway.

Led by the 800th Regiment of the Republican Guard, the Syrian Arab Army stormed the western outskirts of Al-Shoulah after advancing east from Kabawjib.

With Al-Shoulah liberated, the Syrian Arab Army was able to recover the small town of Al-Malha and the entire Panorama area over the weekend; thus, liberating the entire Sukhnah-Deir Ezzor Highway.

Footage of newly liberated Al-Shoulah was posted by Hezbollah’s official media wing, Sunday; the video shows the town after complete expulsion of the Islamic State.

Since liberating the Sukhnah-Deir Ezzor Highway, the Syrian Arab Army has lifted the siege on the Deir Ezzor Military Airport, ending the blockade on the installation after more than nine months.
