The Syrian troops, supported by popular militias and Russian Air Force, launched a massive offensive along Deir Ezzor Al-Mayadeen road, forcing ISIS terrorists to retreat towards Al-Mayadeen, the last resort of the terroro group in Eastern Deir Ezzor.

The ISIS defenses collapsed as the government forces established control over vast areas along the border, preparing for the final push to Al-Mayadeen.

The offensive was also backed by Syrian helicopters, which took off from Deir Ezzor airport for the first time since 2012.
