SYRIAN ARMY NEARS BESIEGED TROOPS IN DEIR ALZOR STATE TV

Syrian state television said the Syrian army advanced on Tuesday to within 100 metres of troops that Islamic State has surrounded for years in the eastern city of Deir al-Zor.

The army and allied forces have come close to relieving the Euphrates city after a swift lunge through jihadist lines. Islamic State has since 2014 besieged a government-held enclave where some 93,000 civilians live and an army garrison is stationed.
