Yesterday, Major General Issam Zahreddine, commander-in-chief of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in Deir Ezzor, visited families and graves of recently deceased soldiers in the city.

Many of these Syrian soldiers fought alongside the prominent Major General in recent battles against ISIS, southwest of Deir Ezzor city.

Remarkably, Issam Zahreddine himself is still recovering from minor injuries sustained during frontline clashes with the Islamic State two weeks ago.

2016 has witnessed unprecedented clashes in Syria’s eastern city of Deir Ezzor with both ISIS and the SAA suffering hundreds of casualties and exchanging blows over chunks of territory.

Approximately 40% of Deir Ezzor city is still held by the SAA, representing a stubborn government enclave at the very heart and center of the Islamic State caliphate.
