Syrian helicopters were able to land and take off for the first time in Deir Ezzor since ISIS conducted its devastating offensive that cut the military base from the main city.

The helicopters were able to bring in fresh reinforcements to fight against the ISIS offensive, whilst also carrying away some injured soldiers from the embattled city.

With helicopters being able to land again, more reinforcements are expected to arrive in the coming hours and days.

It has not yet been revealed at this moment whether the helicopters are landing at the besieged military base, or whether the Syrian Army have secured a new landing area.

In the last four days since ISIS began its offensive on Deir Ezzor, the terrorist group has had over 200 fighters exterminated, whilst the Syrian Army lost between 50-75 soldiers according to conflicting reports.

  1. If only the ASU-57 were still in production/service, the RuAF could attempt to land the SAA in a JiJiga ’78-style air-mech assault.

    These might provide just the mobile artillery punch they need in Deir ez Zor!
