The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) conducted their last major offensive in the Deir Ezzor Governorate this past weekend, targeting Daesh’s positions between Albukamal and Al-Mayadeen.

Led by their elite Tiger Forces, the Syrian Army initiated their offensive on Sunday by freeing several areas close to the important town of Al-Salihiyah, which sits just north of Albukamal.

According to a military source in Deir Ezzor, the Syrian Army secured the following towns on Sunday: Al-Jadleh, Qusur Um Saba, Safsafeh, Ajrama, Salhiyah, Wadi Al-Worod, Maan Al-Sabkha and Al-Shamr Al-Layeh.

With these towns captured by the Syrian Army, Daesh now finds themselves surrounded at Al-Salhiyah as the Tiger Forces prepare to make their last great push along the Euphrates River.
