Units of the Strian Arab Army (SAA) Tiger Forces and their allies have officially met with the defenders of the Syrian city of Deir Ezzor in the 137th Brigade Base area in the western part of the city, the Hezbollah media wing in Syria reported few moments ago.
According to the reports, SAA units entered the 137th Brigade closing the gap in the corridor between government troops in Deir Ezzor city and in the rest of the province.
Government forces reached the city of Deir Ezzor last weekend. Since then, they have been struggling to establish a secured corridor to Deir Ezzor amid an intense fighting with ISIS.
If reports are confirmed, it will be a major blow to the terrorists in the area and will allow the SAA to focus on taking a full control over the Sukhna-Deir Ezzor highway and liberating the entire city.
