Earlier, the Syrian army, allied forces with the support of the long-range aviation of the Russian Air Force, managed to liberate the last major city that controlled the “Islamic state”.
However, now the government has new mission objectives clearing the desert and small villages located along the Euphrates in the section between Salihiyah and Al-Bukamal.
As a result of the successful offensive, the al-Ward oil field, located west of Salihiyah, was also liberated, this deposit, like many in the province, was under the control of militants since 2012.
