Syrian army soldiers have managed to regain full control over a power station in Dayr al-Zawr as they push to drive the Daesh Takfiri terrorists out of the strategic eastern city.
Syrian forces recaptured the facility, which lies west of Dayr al-Zawr air base, on Sunday following intense clashes with Daesh militants, pro-government and Arabic-language al-Masdar news agency reported.
Moreover, Syrian soldiers managed to wrest control over the highway linking Dayr al-Zawr to the city of Sukhnah, and advanced on the Brigade 137 base as well as al-Panorama district. Scores of Daesh terrorists were killed and injured during the operations and their military hardware destroyed.
Syrian army units also tightened the noose around scores of Daesh terrorists on the outskirts of al-Taim oil field, killing and injuring many of them.
The developments came only a day after Syrian army troops and pro-government fighters managed to break a nearly three-year siege imposed by Daesh Takfiris on Dayr al-Zawr air base.
