The Syrian Arab Army’s 104th Airborne Brigade of the Republican Guard has returned to the province of Deir Ezzor with a vengeance after they were briefly deployed to the Syrian capital of Damascus, where they were set to begin the besiegement of the East Ghouta in the Rif Dimashq Governorate.

The Republican Guard – in coordination with the 137th Brigade of the 17th Division and the National Defense Forces (NDF) – stormed the eastern sector of the Industrial District (Al-Sina’a), killing as many as 25 enemy combatants from the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) before they were able to recapture this lost territory and take full control of this area.

Following their success at the Industrial District, the 104th Brigade returned to Sakr Island (Haweeja Al-Sakr), where they launched a counter-assault on the militants from ISIS at Central Park; this resulted in the death of 18 enemy combatants and the destruction of four armored vehicles mounted with doshkas and 14.5mm anti aircraft machine guns.

In addition to their fierce attack at Sakr Island, the 104th Brigade was able to recapture some of the docks that were situated at the eastern bank of Sakr Island, along with a collection of farms near Central Park.

ISIS attempted to breach the Deir Ezzor Military Airport for the fifth time this week, launching a fierce assault on the SAA’s eastern defensive barrier; however, the militant attack on the airport was repelled by the soldiers at the eastern guard post, resulting in the death of a confirmed 32 enemy combatants.
