BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:45 A.M.) – The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have seized the second largest oil field in the Deir Ezzor Governorate, the official Twitter account for the group announced on Tuesday.

According to the group, the Deir Ezzor Military Council took control of the Al-Tanak Oil Field in rural Deir Ezzor after expelling the Islamic State (ISIS) elements from the area.

As a result of this advance, the Syrian Democratic Forces now control two of the largest oil field in Deir Ezzor.

Previously, the Syrian Democratic Forces seized the Al-‘Umar Oil Field after the Islamic State’s complete withdrawal from this area along the eastern bank of the Euphrates River.
