On September 26, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the National Defense Forces (NDF) consolidated their control over Nashad and Mazlum villages on the eastern bank of the Euphrates and continued clashing with ISIS terrorists in the area.

Separately, reports appeared, that government forces captured Hatlah Tahtani village northwest of Nashad. If reports are confirmed, ISIS units in the northern part of Deir Ezzor ciry will be fully besieged by the SAA and the NDF.

Saqr Island east of Deir Ezzor had been one of the key ISIS logistic hubs before the liberation of Hatlah Tahtani. Now, the importance of Saqr Island is much lower.
