Syrian Army makes fresh gains in Deir Ezzor, reaches the Euphrates [+ Video]

The battle for the eastern city of Deirr Ezzor has reached a critical phase with the Syrian Armed Forces storming ISIS-held districts.

Today, the Syrian Army’s elite Tiger Forces spearheaded a massive assault against ISIS militants on al-Baghiliyah District located in the northwestern flanks of the city.

The offensive has so far proved successful with the Army troops liberating several areas including al-Jazeera University and the main gas station.

With more than 75% of the district is now liberated, the government forces are hunting down the defeated ISIS jihadists, who conducted a massive escape from the battlefield.

Meanwhile, the pan-Arab al-Mayadeeen TV channel reported that the Syrian Army has already reached the Euphrates after seizing al-Baghiliyah water pumping station.
