The Syrian Arab Army’s 104th Brigade of the Republican Guard liberated the imperative Al-Ba’ajeen School in the Jubeileh Quarter of Deir Ezzor City on Saturday. The school was used by the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) as a control-and-command center for all terrorist operations in the Deir Ezzor District. According to a military source, the 104th Brigade killed over 60 militants and wounded/captured 30 more in the process of liberating the school. Only 2 ISIS fighters possessed identification:

1. Ahmad Al-Yass
2. Manaf ‘Allaysh

The Syrian Air Force carried out a wave of airstrikes over the weekend, targeting ISIS gatherings in the eastern Deir Ezzor district of Al-Mayadeen. The airstrikes destroyed 2 pick-up trucks mounted with 23 mm machine gun turrets and scores of ISIS militants. According to sources in Deir Ezzor, 2 ISIS field commanders were killed during the airstrike, including Abu Khabaab Al-Nidooneesi and Abu Saheeb Al-Yemeni. Also perishing with the two ISIS field commanders was the wife of Al-Yemeni, Rouqaya ‘Abdullah (Algerian). She is believed to have wed Al-Yemeni during her sex jihad to Syria.

ISIS militants attempted to infiltrate the Fu’adh Cinema in the Deir Ezzor District; however, they were repulsed by the 104th Brigade and NDF fighters. The 104th Brigade was assisted by Syrian Air Force Hind Helicopters that bombarded ISIS militants attempting to flank the cinema. 17 ISIS fighters were killed during the battle, including 2 Chadians and 1 Malaysian.

Also in the Jubeileh Quarter, the Syrian Arab Army destroyed a 35 meter tunnel that housed dozens of ISIS fighters and stored a large quantity of weapons and ammunition. The tunnel’s discovery led to the SAA’s liberation of the Al-Ba’ajeen school, as it was used to supply entrenched ISIS fighters. 23 ISIS fighters were reportedly killed by the SAA, including the following:

Multiple airstrikes from the Anti-ISIS Coalition and the Syrian Air Force were reported from the Deir Ezzor countryside, where the latter specifically targeted ISIS gatherings in Mouhassan. The Syrian Air Force destroyed 4 vehicles loaded with doshkas belonging to ISIS fighters in the city; meanwhile, U.S. aircrafts targeted ISIS gatherings near the salt mines in east Deir Ezzor. The Coalition airstrikes have dissipated over the last two weeks, as ISIS militants have been forced to seek shelter from the persistent attacks.
