Syria's al-Watan newspaper reported that the army forces continued advances in Deir Ezzur city and their first units deployed on the Eastern bank of the river, spreading towards the regions where a number of Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) claimed to have deployed yesterday.
The Arabic-language daily also stressed that the Syrian soldiers are now waiting for mobile bridges to transfer their armored vehicles to continue the military operations.
Meantime, local sources reported that the Syrian army units are trying to establish security 5km around Deir Ezzur military airport, adding that Deir Ezzur-Damascus highway has also reopened and come back into operation.
The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have advanced over 250 square kilometers in their anti-ISIL operations dubbed as 'Island's Storm', and are approaching the contact line with the Syrian army, the Kurdish-led militant group claimed on Monday.
The Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) opened a new front in Eastern Syria after making large advances in the Northern countryside of Deir Ezzur.
The spokesman for international coalition Ryan Dilon reported that since the beginning of the Island's Storm military operations, the SDF has captured more than 250 square kilometers in Wadi Nahr Khabour region in Northeastern Deir Ezzur.
Meanwhile, the SDF media center announced that the Kurdish-led forces have entered the streets of the city of al-Sanayeh in Deir Ezzur province.
Al-Sanayeh industrial region is only 10 kilometers from Deir Ezzur city, meaning that the SDF are now just 10 kilometers away from Syrian troops and their allies if their claims are proved to be true
They are just 10k from the SDF quislings,looks like the SAA just crossed the Reich's red line in Syria.
