DEIR EZZOR, SYRIA (11:40 A.M.) – Nearly three weeks after the U.S. Coalition “accidentally” bombed their positions at Jabal Thardeh in Deir Ezzor, the Syrian Armed Forces are steadily recovering the ground they lost as a result of this attack.
The Syrian Arab Army’s 71st Regiment and 137th Artillery Brigade of the 17th Reserve Division managed to recapture Point 1 at Jabal Thardeh earlier this week, paving the way their most recent advances near the Panorama Checkpoint and Kroum Hill.
Video footage from this battle on Wednesday was captured by Ruptly; it shows the Syrian Armed Forces advancing around the southwestern outskirts of Deir Ezzor City.
The Syrian Armed Forces launched another attack this morning that targeted Point 2 at Jabal Thardeh; it is currently the scene of an intense battle.
