On January 19, clashes between Syrian army troops and ISIS terrorists continued in the Syrian city of Deir Ezzor.

The cemetery, the al-Assad Hospital, and the An Fourat University remained the main secene of fighting between the sides. Separately, ISIS attacked government troops near the Rashidiya District and seized few points in the area. This was the most notable success of the terrorist group in the city since yesterday.

ISIS units also attacked the Deir Ezzor Airport from the western direction but failed to overrun army defenses there and were pushed to retreat.

Last night, a Russian cargo plane dropped supplies to the government-held area of Deir Ezzor. This fact and supplies and reinforcements received by government forces earlier this week will allow the Syrian army and the National Defense Forces to stay strong under the pressure of the terrorists.
