Syria thanks Iran for role in lifting Deir ez-Zor siege

SDF maintains progress in Raqqa while continuing Deir ez-Zor push

14 de septiembre de 2017, 00:36Damascus, Sep 14 (Prensa Latina) Syrian President Bashar al-Asad highlighted the important role of popular organizations and social forces in raising awareness and warning against the dangers of terrorism which is spreading across the world.

American-backed Syrian Democratic Forces are also fighting near the city, advancing from the north bank of the Euphrates river, while Assad's forces move in from the south.

They said that while the militants still control rural areas outside the city and the border with Iraq, they are now encircled by Syrian troops from three sides, with their backs to the Euphrates River.

As pro-government forces closed in on the militants holed up in the area, Russian Federation fired seven missiles, from two submarines from the Admiral Essen frigate in the Mediterranean Sea.

Syrian government forces broke a three-year Isis siege on parts of the provincial capital last week, and are now battling the extremists inside the city.

The extremist group agreed to evacuate territory, for the first time, from a district on the Syria-Lebanon border on August 28. On Thursday, a captive Hezbollah fighter was released.

In the aftermath of the agreement, the US-led coalition began conducting air strikes to block the convoy of fighters from reaching their destination.

Separate suspected Russian and US-led coalition strikes on Syria's Deir Ezzor province killed at least 39 civilians on Thursday, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitor said.
