DAMASCUS, SYRIA (5:30 P.M.) – The Syrian Army troops defending Deir Ezzor Airbase blitzed the Islamic State fighters, regaining a 400 meters of land inside the Cemetery area.

Today’s advance came two days after the government forces repelled a massive attack by the terror group on the airbase.

The Syrian Army’s Republican Guards, backed by the paramilitary National Defense Forces and tribesmen fighters, have been defending their stronghold in the eastern province for two years amid a crippling blockade imposed by ISIS.

  1. The courage and valour of the SAA in Deir Ezzor will be a worthy addition to the historic records in the annals of history where a stalwart few have withstood all that the barbarians have assaulted them with.

    If I had but 1% of the courage of these men I would be proud.
