The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies have uncovered many hideouts and ammunition depots of ISIS cells in the western and northwestern countryside of Deir Ezzor, pro-government sources reported on February 26.
The SAA and its allies have been conducting combing operations around ISIS main stronghold in the central region, the Homs desert, for a few months now.
According to pro-government sources, the SAA recently expanded its combing operations in western and northwestern Deir Ezzor. Army troops reached the Jebel Bishri and al-Harbiat areas for the first time in a while.
In Jebel Bishri, SAA units uncovered and destroyed three hideouts, six ammunition depots and a medical point of ISIS cells. Weapons, medical supplies and several ID cards of Syrian prog-government fighters, who were recently killed by the terrorist group, were found.
The Russian Aerospace Forces have been actively supporting the SAA operations in Jebel Bishri. Last week, a series of Russian airstrikes eliminated scores of terrorists in the area.
The SAA’s operations in the central region have been successfully pressuring ISIS. The terrorist group stepped down its operations in the region in the last few weeks.
