Backed forces, Syrian Army advance on Islamic State territory in Syria

Russia: Air Strike Kills 4 Senior Islamic State Commanders in Syria

The troops' arrival to Deir el-Zour city brings Syrian forces and their allies a step closer to controlling the oil-rich eastern province and its capital bordering Iraq, a major boost for Tehran's growing influence in the area.

The Russian Defense Ministry has reported that the Russian Aerospace Force destroyed an ISIS underground command post, a communication center and killed 40 terrorists, including some of the most important leaders of that group.

The IS-held corridor is already under considerable pressure from southward-pushing army units led by the Tiger Forces.

US -backed militias and the Syrian army advanced in separate offensives against Islamic State in eastern Syria on Saturday, piling pressure on shrinking territory the group still holds in oil-rich areas near the Iraqi border.

They had a good opportunity at the start of the quarter when they got a first-and-goal, but on second down, they fumbled the ball. Besides finishing eighth in the SEC with 2,423 passing yards, Fitzgerald also was the conference's No. 2 rusher with 1,375 yards.

Although U.S. officials have insisted that they do not anticipate clashes with the Syrian-backed force, the growing complexity of the battleground could make unintended flash points more likely.

According to confirmed data, the ministry added, among the killed fighters are "four influential field commanders including Deir Ezzor emir Abu Mohammed al-Shimali" (also known as Tirad Al-Jarba).

Meanwhile, the US-led coalition fighting ISIL said on Friday that it ended its surveillance of buses carrying militants in eastern Syria after a request from the Russian government.

Earlier this week, the Syrian army and allied troops with the backing of Russian air fire lifted the three-year-old siege by IS on Deir al-Zour city through the Brigade 137 base in western Deir al-Zour.

On the other side of that border, the Syrian Arab Army, with intense support from Russian warplanes based in Latakia, has broken the three-year siege of Deir Ezzor after a slow but inexorable advance up the highway from Palmyra.

The source claimed that all of those killed or detained were IS "supporters" and said that they were intending to flee to neighbouring Afghanistan, but did not offer their evidence.

"We're not specifying a timeframe, but we hope it will be a quick operation", Kholeh continued.

The coalition said the line runs from Raqqa Province southeast along the Euphrates River towards Deir al-Zour.

Meanwhile, the former USA ambassador to Syria Robert Ford has said the offensive "complicates" the situation as it could see Washington potentially working with the regime in the province.
