On Oncotber 17, government troops, led by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) Tiger Forces, started advancing towards the ISIS-held town of Moohassan located east of Deir Ezzor city, on the western bank of the Euphrates River.
The SAA advance followed the previous successes in the Deir Ezzor area that allowed government troops to start its operation in Mohassan.
According to pro-opposition sources, ISIS units are now withdrawing from the town via the Euphrates. If this is true, the SAA will declare its liberation soon.
In any case, ISIS members in Mohassan are surrounded from all directions. So, the fall of the town into the hands of the SAA is just a matter of time.
