Battles rage between Assad forces and ISIS on the frontlines of Deir Ezzor military airport and the Industrial neighborhood

Yesterday, Russian warplanes intensively bombarded Deir Ezzor province by conducting more than 30 air raids on the Industrial, al-Oradi, al-Huwayqa neighborhoods of Deir Ezzor along with the village of Hatla north the city, amid fierce battles between ISIS and Assad-regime on multiple fronts in the province.

Yesterday at 6.00 am, ISIS launched an assault on Assad forces positioned at the Industrial neighborhood and al-Jafra, hitting their gatherings at the Industrial neighborhood with a massive VBIED. The group was also able to advance in the regime held Harabish neighborhood after heavy clashes.


Three civilians were martyred by a regime mortar shell that directly landed on the area of Marat in Deir Ezzor’s western countryside yesterday.

These battles come in light of a large-scale ISIS offensive on Deir Ezzor military airport that enabled the group to advance from different axis and forced the Assad-regime to deploy chlorine gas in an attempt to thwart the offensive and push ISIS back.
