Pro-government forces led by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) Tiger Forces and backed up by the Russian Aerospace Forces have outlfanked from the eastern direction the ISIS-held part of al-Mayadin city in the Euhprates Valley.

According to pro-government sources, the SAA reached the Euphrates bridge in the northeastern part of al-Mayadin city. However, the bridge is destroyed in two places. So, in any case the SAA will be pushed to make a pontoon bridge if government troops want to cross to the eastern bank of Euphrates in the area.

According to pro-government sources, government forces are in control of about 30-50% of al-Mayadin. However, ISIS still poses resistance to the Tiger Forces and their allies.

Meanwhile, the Russian Defense Ministry’s Krasnaya Zvezda newspaper announced that the Russian Aerospace Forces conduct 517 combat sorties and destroyed over 1,260 terrorist facilities across Syria in the past week.

Pro-government sources say that a large part of the airstrikes were delivered on ISIS in the province of Deir Ezzor.
