BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:00 P.M.) – Syrian Arab Army (SAA) reinforcements poured into the Deir Ezzor Governorate, Monday, after several military choppers landed at the 137th Brigade Base near the western entrance of the provincial capital.

According to a military source in Deir Ezzor, at least six helicopters carrying reinforcements and supplies landed so far today at the 137th Brigade Base after making the short journey from the Al-Qamishli District of the Hasakah Governorate.

The reinforcements will be concentrated in the western part of the city, where they will aid the army in driving back the Islamic State (ISIL) terrorists from the Panorama area.

With several military operations against the Islamic State forces taking place across the country, the soldiers in the Deir Ezzor Governorate have been ordered to remain on the defensive for the most part until the siege is finally broken.

Staying on the defensive makes sense as the many thousands of civilians in the pocket would be certain to die if ISIS breaks the lines.
Its not as if the SAA defenders are attempting to retreat from the area with Break Out as the Germans were at Stalingrad.

Yes great stuff, defend and do small probing attacks, the Tigers are not so far away but if the areas can be reunited safely it should be done, cool heads and nervs of steel in Deir Ezzor will be rewarded soon
