According to military sources in Syria, the Syrian Army’s elite Republican Guard was able to advance against ISIS terrorists in the eastern province of Deir Ezzor today.
The 104th brigade of the Republican Guard, backed by local fighters, was able to advance in the northern section of the airbase. Pro-government forces also advanced in the industrial area of Liwaa Atta’minat.
Scores of ISIS militants were killed by the Syrian Army in recent fighting. The Russian Air Force (RUAF) has played a key role in assisting forces on the ground, with Tu-22M strategic bombers striking ISIS several times.
ISIS controls most of Deir Ezzor province, and they recently renewed their efforts to capture the remaining areas in the provincial capital.
