Syrian soldiers from the Al-Qassem group in the Al-Sina'a District

DEIR EZZOR, SYRIA (6:45 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army’s elite “Qassem Units,” under the direction of field commander General Ghassan Taraf, carried out a special operation inside the provincial capital of Deir Ezzor on Monday, targeting the Islamic State’s only positions at the Industrial District (Hayy Al-Sina’a).

The Qassem Units began the operation by detonating 3 tunnel bombs under the Islamic State’s positions in Al-Sina’a, destroying several of the terrorist group’s trenches and equipment.

Following the tunnel bombings, the Qassem Units stormed the Islamic State’s defenses, capturing a large chunk of territory between Al-Sina’a and Saqr Island (Hawija Al-Saqr) after a fierce battle.

According to a military source from the Qassem Units, their soldiers managed to capture the Islamic State’s main industrial structures, measuring at a depth of 85 meters and 75 meters.

The Islamic State terrorists were forced to withdraw across the Euphrates after the Qassem Units overran their positions on Monday afternoon.

Tens of Islamic State terrorists were killed as a result of this special operation in Deir Ezzor, including several foreigners from Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Egypt, Iraq, and Uzbekistan.
