On Wednesday, the ISIS defense collapsed in an area northwest of Deir Ezzor city, on the western bank of the Euphrates. Government forces, led by units of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) Tiger Forces, entered the villages of Masrab, Turayf, Buwaytiyah and Tibni as well as the Salim Mount.

Almost no clashes were reported in the area, according to local sources, because a major part of ISIS units had  already withdrawn from there. With this advance, the SAA and its allies liberated about 100km2 and deployed in about 20km from the ISIS strong point of Maadan. Most likely, Maadan remained the only really defended ISIS point northwest of Deir Ezzor city.

Eearlier on Wednesday, reports appeared that some forces conducted an airdrop operation behind ISIS lines near the Conco Gas Plant on the eastern bank of the Euphrates. So far, it is unclear what side really conducted it. However, the attempt of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) to prevent government forces from deploying more forces on the eastern bank flooding the Euphrates with the SDF-controlled dam.

    Kill ISIS.

  • Leave them an escape route to the east bank of the river. Give them to SDF as a gift!

      Better to the north. Send terrorists to their friend SDF-USA. Probably, USA will relocated in Afghanistan, or Yemen, or Libia, or Fillipins.

    better get to the oil fields fast

    • gustavo

      Exactly, this would be very nice and strong hit to SDF-USA aspirations. I hope aerospace russia force continue given very strong support and protection to ground troops to achieve the gol of getting all oil fields at Omar.

  • MD Ranix

    zio terrorists in maadan will be toast soon … and shame on sdf for being alike to the terrorists in trying to stop the legitimate russian led coalition to advance

  • Solomon Krupacek

    They should attack also from north.

    • VGA

      There was harsh resistance there.

  • Trustin Judeau

    Allegedly the US bombed the gas field which hampered the Russian Syrian landing

    • Wahid Algiers

      Where?

      • Xanatos

        A gas plant can be repaired. The field is still seized. Blowing it up sounds like something Isis would do.

    • gustavo

      Where is this information coming from ? If this is true, I am not worry, Russia knows very well what will be the answer, just pay attention to aerospace russia force and you will see.

    The SAA is terribly slow at advancing further up north to at least prevent the Kurds from running east. And if this air drop by the US is confirmed, it will even be hard now. The best place to expand quickly will be up up north which is the desert.

    • Wahid Algiers

      US air drops? possibly where?

      • DJ Double D

        In the oil field to the north from current SAA position across the Euphrates.

    • Attrition47

      Speed can easily be made to backfire; the methodical approach is serving the Syrians well.

    • gustavo

      There is not USA drop at all. There is a Syria-Russia air drop, and this will help a lot the fast avance of Syria-Hezbolah-Iran-Russia ground troops. Of course, one must expect a crazy action of the psyco USA, but for any cray action there will be a contra super-action from Russia.

  • DJ Double D

    Credible information is coming to me that US has offered huge money to the remaining ISIS commanders inside Raqqa to surrender and be airlifted to a safe zone or anywhere of their choice. The source said that the battle will indeed come to a close sooner than previously anticipated by the experts. The reason for this is because of the situation in Deir Ezzor where the price is very high. US is also offering money to some commanders over there – some to concentrate more power against the Russians and SAA and other to leave their positions so the Kurds can quickly capture them and foil the SAA plan at liberating her territory from ISIS. This is looking ridiculous now from the American side. Remember, they keep talking about fighting ISIS but it is clear that they are after Syria’s resources.

    • Gail griffin

      I heard that it was Martians that were offering the money to Isis. This way; they can conquer the earth without a fight. USA is busy with hurricanes which the Martians instigated to detract all else.

  • John Brown

    ISIS members on the west side of the river have been transferred to the East by the SDF and the USA on orders from their Israeli masters, so ISIS can fight the SAA the Easts side of the river so the SDF can get the oil fields. This is why the resistance on the West side of the river has collapse.

    • Wahid Algiers

      Equal. Nearly no losses or none to Ma’ adan. And SDF and ISIS is the same, so don’ t worry. SAA and allies have to get them all out of Syria.

  • Cheryl Brandon

    Well done SAA=Russian troops+iraqi forces;You are doing very well;I pray for more collapses! Any other terrorist wearing army clothes who gets in your way; Bomb them/blow them up or builldoze them! You are doing your work on your soil! F…k off back to the USA and draw your whatever colour lines in Texas; Help your fellow men in Huston; Leave Syrian forces to do their work! How dare the criminal tell the landlord where to do in his own house? Are the USA army NUTS? or too oil CRAZY?

  • Ronald

    They have stepped across the river , back that up , north of D/E can wait .
    Time the Russians teach the SAA how to air drop , and bring some tanks .
