The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the National Defense Forces (NDF), led by the Tiger Forces, have resumed their operations against ISIS near Mayadin city. According to pro-government sources, government troops have passed about 30km southeast of it. The SAA and the NDF have also advanced against ISIS and reached the settlements of Bir Duhul and Al-Duhul.

The SAA and the NDF faced little ISIS resistance during their advance because a major part of ISIS members had withdrawn from the desert area. ISIS is now focusing in clashing with government troops in al-Bukamal.

The government advance will put an additional pressure on ISIS members in the border area and would contribute to a joint effort of the SAA and Hezbollah to secure al-Bukamal.
