Syrian government troops cross Euphrates River: Russian military”

The Syrian Army units, in cooperation with the allied forces, continued to advance on all fighting axes against ISIL terrorist organization and established control over new points on the outskirts of Deir Ezzor city and its countryside.

Syrian troops seized a suburb of the eastern city of Deir al-Zor on Sunday, tightening the noose around Islamic State, a Syrian military source said.

Two planes landed and took off from the base on Monday, state TV reported - the first such activity there since September 2016, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group said.

The terror outfit started its campaign of bloodshed and destruction against the Arab country in 2014, taking over vast swathes of territory.

The Syrian army and USA -backed militias are fighting separate offensives against Islamic State in the province, the jihadist group's last major stronghold in Syria.

Earlier this month, the Russia-backed Syrian army broke the IS siege of Deir al-Zour, which had been held by the terrorist group for three years.

Daesh is now reported to be in control of just a third of the province, the liberation of which would also put a stop to the movement of its terrorists across the common border with Iraq.
