The ISIS terrorists faced severe losses in terms of personnel and equipment, several of their vehicles including, after their positions next to Raqqah bridge, located northwest of Deir Ez Zour city, were pounded.

In addition, dozens of ISIS terrorists were killed when Syrian Army’s artillery units pounded their movements in the vicinity of Villat Al Adim, the surrounding areas of Al Panorama area and the neighborhoods of Al Hweiqeh and Al Rishdiyeh in Deir Ez Zour city, the old airport, Tel Al Brouk and Al Bugheiliyeh.
