BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their allies continued their field operations in the western countryside of the Deir Ezzor Governorate, today, targeting the Islamic State’s (IS) large pocket in the Syrian Desert.

Led by the 5th Legion, the Syrian Arab Army and their allies struck the Islamic State’s positions near the large hilltop of Tal Al-Ahmar in western Deir Ezzor.

According to a military report, the Syrian Army and their allies killed at least 18 Islamic State terrorists in western Deir Ezzor, while advancing on the terrorist group’s positions inside the Syrian Desert.

With IS scattered across the western countryside of Deir Ezzor, the Syrian Army and their allies will now attempt to clear the 7,200 square kilometers of desert landscape under the control of the terrorist grou.
