Syria Army Retakes Several Areas in Deir Ez-Zor, Raqqa

On Saturday, Syrian troops made advances in the western countryside of Deir ez-Zor and managed to recapture a number of districts there, SANA news agency reported.

Separately, the Arab country’s government forces scored gains against the terror group in Raqqa and liberated a number of oil fields in southern areas of the northern province.

During the clashes in the two provinces, a large number of the Takfiri militants, including Saudi and Tunisian leaders, were killed and injured, the report added.

Syria has been gripped by civil war since March 2011 with various terrorist groups, including Daesh (also known as ISIS or ISIL), currently controlling parts of it.

According to a report by the Syrian Center for Policy Research, the conflict has claimed the lives of over 470,000 people, injured 1.9 million others, and displaced nearly half of the country’s pre-war population of about 23 million within or beyond its borders.
