Updated Map of Military Situation at Deir Ez-Zor

The army still has a strong foothold in the western part of the city, while ISIS terrorists have completely seized the eastern part of the Euphrates River, effectively leaving the other insurgent groups surrounded. The Brigadier General, Issam Zahreddin, has largely kept SAA soldiers here entrenched while letting the terrorist infighting unfold. Recently, Issam sensed weakness and seized the moment to recapture terrain in and around the city. Meanwhile, the troops at Deir Ez-Zor Airport are on high alert and are preparing for a coming ISIS offensive.
