The Syrian troops supported by popular militias continued to advance towards the city of Abu Kamal in the eastern province of Deir Ezzor.

On Wednesday, SAA units established control over an area of 40 square kilometers east of Humayma village, entering the southern Deir Ezzor province.

The offensive is a part of the operation Fajr-3 (Sunrise-3) which was launched this September. The aim of the operation is to clear the area on the Syria-Iraq border used by ISIS militants for transfer of supplies and reinforcements.
