The terrorist group announced that it regained control over the Al-Jafra oil field to the north west of Deir Ezzor city.

In the process of the attack, ISIS claimed that 17 fighters of the US-backed SDF were killed.

This comes as the SDF have made no major advancements in Deir Ezzor countryside following their rapid capture of territory from ISIS some weeks back.
