Deir Ezzor (Syria News) Sources informed, on Tuesday, that the Syrian army forces and their allied militias managed to besiege the Islamic State-held areas, in the city of Deir Ezzor, Qasioun News reported.

The sources revealed that the Syrian army besieged the Islamic State-held areas, after recapturing al-Husseinyah Village, north of the Euphrates River, in northern Deir Ezzor.

The siege extended from the areas of Hatla and Murat, in northeastern Deir Ezzor, the sources added.

Thus after besieging the areas, Syrian army forces isolated the Islamic State militants, who were in the besieged neighborhoods, from their areas in the western countryside of Deir Ezzor.

It is noteworthy that the Syrian regime is aiming at driving out the Islamic State militants from the areas located in western Deir Ezzor, while both the regime and SDF are willing to liberate the area from the radical group through two different offensives.
