Syrian Army attacks ISIS-held positions in Deir Ezzor

Clashes re-erupted in the north-western outskirts of Deir Ezzor as the Syrian government forces began a fresh offensive to expand its control in the eastern city.

Today, the Army’s fearless Tiger Forces stormed Al-Baghiliyah and Aiyash districts amid heavy clashes with the Islamic State jihadists.

The attack has been shored up by heavy Russian airstrikes which targeted ISIS positions and fortifications along the frontlines.

The defeated terror group is progressively losing more grounds to the Syrian troops in its last heartland of Deir Ezzor.
