Syria's elite troops reach eastern bank of the Euphrates in Deir ez-Zor

Meanwhile, the Observatory said Syrian reconnaissance forces, backed by Russian air forces, had reached the eastern bank of Euphrates River in Deir al-Zour.

The river has formed a dividing line between Russian-backed Syrian government forces and a US-backed alliance of Kurdish and Arab fighters, the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), who are also fighting the Islamic State.

They have liberated some 60 square kilometers [some 23 sq. miles] on the eastern bank but have encountered obstacles, he said.
