The Syrian army forces continued operations to break the terrorists' siege on Deir Ezzur, regaining control of a new region.

The army soldiers engaged in heavy clashes with ISIL terrorists in Western Deir Ezzur, retaking control of an asphalt workshop in the region.

According to military sources, the army troops are just 3km away from ISIL's main lines around Deir Ezzur, specially Brigade 137 in the Western parts of the city.

Earlier today, the Syrian army troops, backed up by the Russian Air Force, continued to advance against ISIL in the Eastern province of Deir Ezzur in several flanks despite massive redeployment of ISIL's fighters and military hardware from other parts of Iraq and Syria to Deir Ezzur, military sources confirmed.

The sources said that the army soldiers drove ISIL out of the towns of Kobajeb and al-Shoula and several strategic hills, pushing towards Brigade 137 base in the Western outskirt of Deir Ezzur city.

They added that the army men captured al-Kharateh energy field North of Tar Tarfawi region in the Western countryside of Deir Ezzur city, deploying less than 20km away from Tal (hill) al-Sonouf near the city airbase.

A large number of ISIL terrorists have left behind their arms and equipment and have fled the battlefield amid rapid advances of the army.

The sources went on to say that the army forces have reached areas 10km away from Brigade 137 base, adding that the army is on the threshold of lifting ISIL's siege on Deir Ezzur after over three years.
