The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) Tiger Forces and 5th Assault Corps as well as the Republican Guard have repelled all ISIS counter-attacks and secured a corridor to the Syrian city of Deir Ezzor.

Following this success, govrnment forces have continued their efforts to secure the Sukhna-Deir Ezzor highway and the western part of Deir Ezzor city.

The village of Ash Sholah remains a key battleground at the Sukhna-Deir Ezzor highway. The SAA is attempting to secure the area under a coonstant ISIS pressure. However, despite multiple airstrikes by Russian and Syrian warplanes on ISIS units the village is till contested.

ISIS fiercely battles for Ash Sholah because if this point is fully secured by the SAA government forces will have an opportunity to put an additional pressure on ISIS terrorists insdie Deir Ezzor.

Meanwhile, reports appeared that government forces, led by the Tiger Forces, have launched an effort aimed at capturing the Fusayyat Mountain located west of the Deir Ezzor-Maadan highway. Controlling the mountain the SAA will be able to secure the northern flank of the assault force that have linked with the defenders of Deir Ezzor west of the 137th Brigade Base.
