TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) -“Units of the Syrian Arab Army, in cooperation with the allied and supporting forces, have accomplished the mission of fully liberating Deir ez-Zor city from [the] ISIS terrorist organization,” a military source said on Friday, as cited by the state news agency.
Large numbers of IS fighters, including the group’s leaders, were killed. Their weapons and equipment were also destroyed, the source added. The terrorists’ munitions depots in the city were reportedly seized.
The army’s de-mining experts are currently clearing landmines, bombs and other explosive devices left behind by IS terrorists in the area.
