During the last 24 hours of battles with ISIS, SDF took several villages on the left bank of the Euphrates, east of Al Mayadin, including Diban, Tayyani, Ruqayb and ash-Shinan. Terrorists are gradually retreating but still show fierce resistance to the Kurdish fighters. Meanwhile, SAA continue storming the Hawijat Kati’ Island in the northern suburb of Deir Ezzor. Russian TOS-1A flamethrower is also crossing the river towards the island to back Syrian Army.
Terrorists are throwing all their forces to continue defending their positions in Abu Kamal, the last ISIS stronghold in Syria and Iraq, as Iraqi forces have liberated the town of Rawa, the last foothold of terrorists in their country.
Syrian Army troops continued fighting armed rebel forces in east and north-east Hama. Syrian Army has ousted militants from several towns and villages while militants, in their turn, have managed to destroy at least 3 tanks of the SAA.
