They also established control over new areas in Mayadeen, namely Al Baloum neighborhood, the industrial area and Al Madajin.

Later, fierce clashes broke out between the Syrian Army and ISIS terrorists in direction of Khasham-Hatla, located east of the Euphrates River and in the neighbourhoods of Al Orfi and Al Sinaa in Deir Ez Zour city, during which, scores of the terrorists were killed.

In addition, the Syrian Air Force and artillery units destroyed several fortified positions and vehicles of ISIS terrorists in the towns of Mohassan and Mayadeen, the villages of Buqrus, Al Jneiniyeh, Al Husseiniyeh, Hatla, Saalou, Zeban, Hawaej Zeban, Al Boleil, Al Salehiya and the neighborhoods of Kannamat, Al Hamidiyeh, Al Sheikh Yaseen, Khassarat and Al Aridi in Deir Ez Zour city.
