Moments ago, Syrian state-media reported that the Syrian Army were less than 100 meters from reaching the beleaguered city of Deir Ezzor in Syria’s east.
However, within minutes, it became confirmed that the siege of Deir Ezzor was lifted by General Yarob Zahredinne.
It can now be confirmed that pro-government forces entered Brigade Base 137 on the outskirts of Deir Ezzor.
Once supply lines are secured, the hundreds of thousands of civilians in Deir Ezzor city can finally start receiving food and medicine from highways rather than risky air drops that would occasionally fall into ISIS-held areas.
