Syrian army makes more advance inside Deir ez-Zor

PanARMENIAN.Net - The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) scored another big advance in the Deir ez-Zor Governorte this week after launching a large-scale assault inside the provincial capital on Tuesday, October 10, Al-Masdar News reports.

Backed by heavy airstrikes from their Russian counterparts, the Syrian Arab Army stormed the Islamic State’s (IS) positions at the Al-‘Arfi District, capturing several blocks inside the militant stronghold in the provincial capital.

According to a military source in Deir ez-Zor, the Syrian Arab Army seized a large portion of the Al-‘Arfi District on Tuesday night, while also killing scores of IS militants, including one of their field commanders.

As a result of this advance, the Syrian Arab Army was able to advance within striking distance of the strategic Al-Siyasiyah Bridge, which has been used by the Islamic State for several years to cross back-and-forth from the provincial capital.
