The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) uncovered a large hideout of ISIS cells near the town of al-Quriyah in the southern Deir Ezzor countryside on June 19, according to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA).
Inside the hideout, the army found several assault rifles, hand grenades, rocket-propelled grenades, military uniforms and flags of the terrorist group.
“The hideout was being used by terrorists of ISIS organization to coordinate their terrorist attacks in Deir Ezzor countryside, which witnessed increasing attacks by the remnants of the terrorist group, recently,” The SANA’s reporter in Deir Ezzor said.
Earlier this week, the SAA uncovered two large weapons workshops of ISIS in Deir Ezzor and Raqqa. The workshops contained over 12,000 mortar shells and loads of explosive materials.
The SAA has apparently intensified its combing operations in Deir Ezzor, Raqqa and Homs in a bid to counter ISIS’s attempts to resurface in central Syria.
