Inside Syria Media Center’ military correspondents say, the Syrian Arab army (SAA) and its allies have secured Palmyra – Deir-Ezzor road. This road became a major supply route from government territory to the eastern city, defeating a strong Islamic State attack.
It should be noticed, Islamic State’s assault began on Thursday. Terrorists’ first major counterattack against the Syrian army was beaten back.
‘The Syrian army and its allies completely secured Palmyra – Deir-Ezzor highway after foiling the intense attack’ a military spokesperson said. ‘The highway has become passable for traffic in both directions to and from Deir-Ezzor,’ it added.
