Deir Ezzor (Syria News) More than fifteen civilians were either killed or wounded, on Saturday morning, in Russian air strikes conducted in eastern Deir Ezzor, while regime forces recaptured a town, located on the southern banks of the Euphrates River.

A source told Qasioun News that fifteen civilians were killed and others were wounded, this morning, in air strikes carried out by Russian warplanes on Mahkan town, in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor.

Meanwhile, Syrian regime forces and allied militias, managed to recapture Hawija Mariya area, which is located on the southern bank of the Euphrates River, and Ayyash Fuqani area, north of Deir Ezzor.

The Syrian army forces also conducted intensive artillery and rockets shelling on the Islamic State-held areas, the source added.

It is noteworthy that the Islamic State has recently lost large areas in Deir Ezzor, against the advance of the regime forces, which entered the city early this month.
