On October 6, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies reportedly strarted storming the ISIS-held city of Mayadin located in the Euphrates Valley in the province of Deir Ezzor.
According to pro-government sources, government forces entered into the western part of Mayadin and seized the grain silos, the hyper market building, the automated bakery and Rahbah Castle.
The advance is allegedly supported by Russian warplanes.
Some pro-government media outlets event speculated that the SAA is stroming Mayadin from multiple directinos (up to 3). However, this is hardly possible because government forces have not yet isolated the ISIS-held city.
