BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:40 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army and Hezbollah wasted no time, Monday, attacking the Islamic State’s (ISIL) defenses near the strategic T-2 Pumping Station, as their forces resume operations to reach Albukamal.

Units from the Syrian Army’s 5th Corps – alongside Hezbollah, Hashd Al-Sha’abi (Iraqi paramilitary), and Liwaa Fatemiyoun (Iranian-Afghani paramilitary) – attacked the Islamic State’s positions in the Zaliyiat area of southwestern Deir Ezzor, scoring several direct hits on the enemy defenses.

Not long after launching their assault, the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies announced the liberation of the Zaliyiat area after the Islamic State militants abandoned their positions earlier today.

With the Zaliyiat area under their control, the Syrian Arab Army and their allies have continued their push towards the Albukamal Crossing, which is considered the Islamic State’s lifeline between Deir Ezzor and Iraq’s Al-Anbar Governorate.

And the Tigers should strike east from Rusafah to reach the right bank of the Euphrates below Raqqa and cut the Raqqa-DeZ N4 road.
