The Syrian Arab Army’s 104th Airborne Brigade of the Republican Guard – in coordination with a local tribe – has captured the village of Al-Malha in the Deir Ezzor Governorate after launching a new offensive east of the city.

According to a military source in the 104th Brigade, the soldiers from the Republican Guard launched this offensive 20km east from the provincial capital after controlling most of the Al-Kanamat Quarter.

West of Deir Ezzor City, the 104th Brigade seized an ISIS weapons depot in the village-center of Al-Shoula, confiscating a large cache of assault rifles, ammunition, RPGs, and mortars in the process.

On Sunday morning, an ISIS contingent attempted to infiltrate through the 104th Brigade’s frontline defenses at the village of Al-Jafra; however, they were unable to breach their fortifications and withdrew their attack after sustaining heavy casualties, including a field commander of Tunisian descent: “Abu Talha Al-Tounisi.”

At Sakr Island, the 104th Brigade carried out a number of raids on ISIS positions near the Eastern Bank Fisheries and Central Park, killing 14 confirmed enemy combatants, including Mustafa Mahmoud Ghannam (Kuwaiti), ‘Umar Waleed Al-Baghouth (Palestinian), Fou’ad Yousif ‘Abdullah (Syrian from Deir Ezzor), and Mohammad Hassan Al-Hosh.
