DEIR EZZOR, Syria – Earlier it was reported by Fort Russ News that the last ISIS stronghold in eastern Syria, Albukamal was 85% liberated by the Syrian Army.
Since then, the Syrian Army has claimed that the entirety of Albukamal, in Deir Ezzor countryside near the Iraqi border, has been liberated from the terrorist group, according to Leith Fadel, CEO of the highly reliable Al-Masdar News.
Syrian Army now claiming Albukamal has been liberated. No idea about the fate of the remaining Daesh terrorists.

If the report is correct, this would prove to be a huge blow to the terrorist organisation who has virtually been exterminated in Iraq besides isolated pockets and cells still operating undercover.
UPDATE SINCE PUBLICATION:
Hezbollah-affiliated media have also confirmed that Albukamal has been liberated in its entirety.
