Syrian forces have liberated new areas on the outskirts of the eastern city of Dayr al-Zawr as they continued their advance against the foreign-backed Daesh terrorists.
The Friday development came as the Syrian army managed to recapture a suburban area of the key city while inflicting heavy losses and casualties on the Takfiri militants.
The latest operations by army-led forces were part of a larger offensive to entirely liberate the remaining areas surrounding Dayr al-Zawr still controlled by the terror group.
This is while Syrian state news agency SANA also reported Friday that army units clashed with Daesh terrorists in a number of neighborhoods in the town of Mihkan, south of al-Mayadeen city towards al-Bokmal city.
According to the report, government forces also killed and injured many of the militants during the offensive and destroyed a number of their vehicles, including booby-trapped ones.
