The Syrian Arab Army has fully liberated Deir ez-Zor city after over three years of ISIS occupation. Much of the city had been liberated following Syria’s breaking of the siege of Deir ez-Zor and entering the city on 5 September of this year.

Deir ez-Zor was the last stronghold of ISIS in Syria and while other pockets of the terrorist group remain, the full liberation of Deir ez-Zor, along with nearby al-Mayadeen, the effective world ‘capital’ of ISIS, means that the group is essentially destroyed as a battle capable organisation with territory under its illegal occupation.
