An unexpected attack by IG radicals occurred near the border with Iraq in the southeast of Homs. The militants who were in an ambush captured and shot two fighters of the Popular Mobilization Force. In the southwestern part of the region, units of the National Defense Forces (NDF) and units of the Syrian Arab Army advanced slightly to the east and took a number of strategic positions of the Syrian Free Army (FSA) militants who retreated to the At-Tanf border crossing.

The Russian Aerospace Forces continued to support the units of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies advancing in the province of Deir ez-Zor throughout the day. As a result of several sorties, the Islamists lost two tanks, two stores with ammunition, as well as several military pickups with weapons. After that, the militia units on the side of the SAA managed to occupy the village of Kobajip, as well as two small villages near it. On the border between Deir ez-Zor and the neighboring province of Homs, Western Alliance forces are still blocking a convoy of IS fighters evacuating from the Western Kalamun Mountains to the city of Abu Kemal. Buses with radicals are under the gun aviation Western coalition.

Thanks to the support of the Russian Aerospace Forces, the Syrian government’s army managed to break through to Deir ez-Zor and lift the siege of the city, which lasted three years. Ninth tanks and other equipment of the Syrian army entered the territory of the 137 artillery brigade. In addition, with the support of the Russian Aerospace Forces, government troops liberated an oil field 15 kilometers from the city of Deir ez-Zor. After the breakthrough of the siege, the militants of the "Islamic State" began to storm the areas controlled by the army of the Syrian government. Militants are storming the areas of Kusur, Jaradi and Rashidiya.

Militants of the IG, surrounded in the Akerbat area, began to resort to extreme measures in the fight against the elite squad “ISIS Hunters”. The terrorists sent several suicide bombers at once to the strongholds of the Syrian army. The explosions killed at least 13 military personnel.

      ".. managed to break through to Deir ez-Zor and lift the siege of the city, which lasted three years." The defenders of the city really have a holiday. And not just them.

        So far, information on a successful breakthrough to the garrison has not been written on Russian-language resources. If so, then this is a colossal achievement.

          Unfortunately, the breakthrough has not yet been confirmed. CAA positions are still 15 kilometers from those blocked in the city. they wrote that there are minefields on the way in addition to this, the positions of the Asad troops in the DEZ are divided into 2 parts, which are isolated by militants from each other. I think that so far we can talk about fire control of the territory between the Special Economic Zone and the Tigers coming to their aid. It is naive to think that the IG will so easily give up the positions that they have been building for 3 years.

          The first information came last night. By the way, it appeared in the module on the side (Picture of the day). And now several news blocks are “hanging”, with links to sources.

      A military victory is close, but not political, much more water will flow to a complete victory, the curators will not refuse from the "igil" and all sorts of "nusr" - there will be "quiet" terrorism ....

    over time, the TRACK of states is clearly manifested, the victorious actions of the Russian Federation on the fields of the SAR break all the striped plans, the response to diplomatic relations between the USA and the Russian Federation.

    I was waiting for this news at VO, I waited a very long time and now it appeared THREE YEARS, but it appeared!
    Congratulations to our videoconferencing and CAA with such a victory with which only the liberation of Aleppo is probably comparable. Congratulations to the HEROIC garrison of Deir ez-Zor, our government would not hurt to consider such a possibility as declaring cities as twin cities of Deir ez-Zor and Leningrad (St. Petersburg) cities that did not submit to a strong and merciless enemy. Of all the cities in Syria's enclaves, Deir ez-Zor is the most worthy of the twin city with Leningrad itself (St. Petersburg). good

    The siege of DeZa has not yet been lifted. Only one column broke through. The fighting is on the outskirts of the city. But today, most likely, the city will be released.

        I absolutely agree with you. The units of the Syrian Arab Army blocked in Deir ez-Zor received undeniable evidence of a very close and so suffering victory! The fighting spirit of the Syrian Army has increased and strengthened! Belief in victory does its job.
        Our Pilots well done! May God grant them health and long life.
        Well, brothers! In Syria, the turning point has come (with the Igil geeks) and this is obvious!
        Very good news!!!

    Yes, yes, although there is almost a bare desert, but for now the main forces are clearing the corridor to Deir ez Zoll. But this is awesome. Could. Barmalei, despite all kinds of help from the United States and the coalition, could not strangle this city, and the Syrian army, together with the Russian Air Force, managed to reach it and soon they would go into a city that had been struggling for so long surrounded. It will take a long time to release him. And you have to cross to the other side

    Unfortunately, the Syrian army has not yet entered the city. There are stubborn battles with approached terrorist groups that want to prevent the city’s deblockade.
    I really hope that our VKS and SAA will be able to turn the tide in a few days
    Card for today

      Who, who? Matthias Damke! He crowed about international law again. Something about Racca does not remember. There are now the most international rights, they are ironing with American aviation.

      There, judging by the reports, one or two assault groups broke through to base 137. That is, the corridor has not yet been established, but the fact of a breakthrough is already there. That is, the blockade is broken, but not yet lifted. hi

      The main tactical goal so far is to transfer tanks to the surrounded defenders of the city, and it has been achieved today. The main operational goal is to surround the bulk of fanatics outside the city building, to draw it into counterattacks in the territory adjacent to the city. Smashing them at bases and airfields is better than in urban battles. Hurry would not be necessary.
