Syrian army, allies break Daesh siege on Dayr al-Zawr air base


Syrian army soldiers, backed by allied fighters from popular defense groups, have managed to break a nearly three-year siege imposed by Daesh Takfiri terrorists on a strategic airbase in the eastern city of Dayr al-Zawr as they continue to make substantial gains against the extremists.

Syria’s official news agency SANA reported that the breach came after government forces and allies that were advancing from the Maqabir (Cemetery) district of the city, located 450 kilometers northeast of the capital Damascus, linked up with the soldiers holding the military site.

Syrian army troops and pro-government fighters had launched a new push on Friday towards the besieged military airport, as part of a multi-pronged offensive to retake the entire eastern city from Daesh Takfiris.

Earlier, Syrian soldiers and their allies established complete control over the town of Ash Sholah and the village of Tal Alloush.
