The Syrian Arab Army is on the move in Deir Ezzor’s northwestern countryside today, recapturing several sites that were under the control of the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) since Sunday.
Earlier today, the Syrian Arab Army’s 104th Airborne Brigade of the Republican Guard – in close coordination with the 137th Artillery Brigade of the 17th Reserve Division, the National Defense Forces (NDF), and the Shaytat Tribesmen – imposed full control over the Saiqa Camp and the strategic hilltop of Tal Kroum after a violent battle with the ISIS terrorists.
According to a military source in Deir Ezzor, the Syrian Arab Army’s 104th Airborne Brigade is now targeting the Ayyash weapons depot that was captured by ISIS on Sunday; if they are able to recapture this site, along with Jabal Thurdeh, they will have effectively reversed all of the terrorist group’s gains.
Preliminary reports from Deir Ezzor indicate that the Syrian Armed Forces have recaptured the Ayyash weapons depot; however, there has been no official confirmation or footage from the Syrian Arab Army.
In addition to their success at these aforementioned sites, the Syrian Arab Army’s 104th Brigade also repelled ISIS’ large-scale assault on the Deir Ezzor Military Airport this morning, killing over 30 enemy combatants in the process of clearing the area.
