On June 2, ISIS announced a new attack on the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) positions south of Deir Ezzor. However, SAA troops in the city and the airport managed to repel the ISIS attacks and the terrorist group failed to capture any point.
Clashes are still ongoing in the Panorama area, the Syriatel hill and the Umm Abboud hill.
Russian and Syrian Air Force warplanes targeted ISIS positions in the Panorama farms, the Al-Thardah mountain and the Taim oil field.
Also the SAA artillery targeted ISIS fighters in Al-Mayadeen Kow’ and the vicinity of the panorama area. According to opposition sources, US-led coalition warplanes targeted ISIS positions in the oil fields of Ward, Tanak and Omar.
From its side, ISIS continued to target civilians in Deir Ezzor city. Two people lost their life as a result of the ISIS shelling Al-Joura district with mortars.
The Deir Ezzor province is witnessing poor humanitarian conditions as a result of heavy airstrikes by US-led coalition warplanes on Al-Mayadeen and A-Bukmal, as well as the severe shortage of food and medicine due to the ISIS siege of the provincial capital.
