After about 3 years of being besieged… the regime forces and Russia move to encircle ISIS within Deir Ezzor city and hundreds of meters separate them from doing that

The surroundings of Deir Ezzor city continue to witness violent clashes between the regime forces supported by the gunmen loyal to them of Syrian and non-Syrian nationalities against members of the “Islamic State” organization, the clashes are concentrated in the east of the city at al-Mri’eyyeh area, and the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights learned that the regime forces managed to advance in al-Mri’eyyeh area east of the city and east of the airbase and controlled wide parts of it, and they have monitored by firearm the remaining distance between their advancement areas and the Euphrates River, which enabled them to besiege the “Islamic State” organization by firearm in Deir Ezzor city, and if the regime forces were able to advance in the distance they control now by firearm between al-Mri’eyyeh and the river, then, they will be able to impose a military and human siege on the organization in the city.

These violent clashes coincide with information from reliable sources obtained by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights about the intention of the Russian forces to cross the Euphrates River to the eastern bank opposite to Deir Ezzor city, in order to secure regime forces within the city before controlling it completely, where the reliable sources confirmed to the Syrian Observatory that the operation of crossing the river is scheduled to be carried out within the coming 24 hours, and after the crossing is completed they will control of the villages of Hatlah, Al-Jninah, Marat, Husseiniya and Sabkha, where preparations are underway to start the process by the Russian forces who are supporting the regime forces by land and air coverage since the start of their operation in Deir Ezzor.
