Breaking the Daesh siege in the eastern city of Deir al-Zour, will take only hours, as the army is rapidly advancing against the Daesh, a well-informed source said, on Sunday night.
The army has entered the administrative border of Deir al-Zour province, in eastern Syria, rapidly approaching to break the Daesh siege on the capital city of Deir al-Zour, the source said.
With the army approaching, the Daesh militants are raining down the city with mortar shells, amid a festive mood among the civilians, who are feverishly waiting for the army’s arrival, the source said.
Meanwhile, a military source said that, the army is progressing, capturing key areas and becoming 10 km from reaching the Regiment 137, in western Deir al-Zour, where Syrian soldiers are besieged.
Deir al-Zour city has been besieged since 2015, by the Daesh, which controls large swathes in that oil-rich area, near the Iraqi border.
The army operation to reach Deir al-Zour has been dragging on since May, during which the military forces and allied Iranian-backed fighters, drove the Daesh of key areas in the desert region in central Syria
