Syria: Gov't Troops Inch Closer to Lifting Deir Ezzur Airbase Siege



The Syrian army backed by the Russian air force continued its advances in the Southern part of Deir Ezzur province and managed to seize control of vast areas in the region.

"Russian long-range aircraft played an important role in undermining the combat capability and demoralization of Daesh [ISIL] troops in the area of ​​the city of Deir Ezzur. Tu-22M3 aircraft conducted 36 sorties, during which 34 terrorist facilities were destroyed," Lt. Gen. Sergei Rudskoi, chief of the Russian General Staff Main Operational Directorate, said, adding that "with the active support of the Russian Aerospace Forces, the garrison of government troops in the besieged city of Deir Ezzur has significantly improved its position".

The ISIL terrorists drove a wedge along the government-controlled regions mid-January after capturing Deir Ezzur's cemetery and the road connecting the city to the airbase. 14,000 ISIL terrorists launched a massive attack on army positions South of Deir Ezzur city, cutting off the strategic road connecting the city to a military airport.

After several rounds of heavy offensives against the Syrian Army positions that all failed, 14,000 ISIL militants and tens of suicide attackers and bomb-laden vehicles, managed to advance against government forces on the road connecting Deir Ezzur airbase to the city, dividing army-controlled regions in Deir Ezzur into two parts.

Military sources disclosed that the ISIL's current round of attacks is the heaviest and largest operation the terrorist group has ever conducted in Deir Ezzur city and its military airport.

According to reports, the ISIL has gathered a large number of its forces from Raqqa, Deir Ezzur countryside and even from Mosul in Iraq to take part in the offensive. The ISIL also has a large number of suicide attackers and bomb-laden vehicles involved in the offensive in Deir Ezzur.

Then, Syrian Army troops, backed up by the Syrian and Russian air force, started to hit ISIL's positions hard in the outskirts of Deir Ezzur to remove terrorists' siege on the city's military airport, managing to recapture several regions between the Deir Ezzur airbase and the city.

Syrian army units backed by aerial support have recaptured more areas in strategic al-Ma'amel region and in the surrounding areas of security brigade, as the military operations come closer to breaking the Deir Ezzur military airport siege.

Russia begun an aerial operation against the terrorists in Syria since September 2015 at Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's request.
