BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:15 P.M.) – Syrian Arab Army operations against ISIS south of Al-Mayadeen along the western bank of the Euphrates River are still in full swing as the former continues to battle their way south towards the Iraqi border.

Capitalizing on their liberation of the town of Mahkan yesterday, Syrian Army forces pushed on to the next big ISIS stronghold, Al-Quriyyah.

At the present time, heavy clashes are ongoing inside Al-Quriyyah where Islamic State militants are attempting to hold onto the town – likely as part of a rearguard action.

According to military sources exclusive to Al-Masdar News, many ISIS fighters and their family have begun retreating from Al-Asharah (south of Al-Quriyyah) towards the strategic border town of Abu Kamal.

As all of this is taking place, the Russian Aerospace Forces are carrying-out precision airstrikes throughout middle Euphrates valley region, targeting Islamic State positions and movements where every they are found.
