Khawla said that the goal of their forces is to liberate every village on the eastern bank of the Euphrates up to the border with Iraq.

Abu Khawla, who is in his early 30s, said 10,000 fighters were taking part in the Deir al-Zor campaign, the bulk of them members of Arab tribes from eastern Syria.

Footage has emerged of a massive Kurdish convoy heading southwards along the main road leading to Hasakah to Deir ez-Zor.

ABOARD THE ADMIRAL ESSEN, Eastern Mediterranean-The Russian navy launched a salvo of cruise missiles into Syria's Deir Ezzour province, a stronghold of Islamic State militants fighting to topple the Syrian government.

He said SDF fighters did not expect clashes with Syrian regime forces, but if fired upon "we will respond". Indeed, the last time Shoigu visited Syria to meet with Assad and inspect the Khmeimim airbase was in June 2016.

Russia, Turkey and Iran agreed Friday on the fourth, final, de-escalation zone in Syria, which is designed to ensure ceasefire between Syrian government forces and rebels for a period of six months in order to pave the way for a political resolution to the six-year war. However, they still control rural areas outside the city and the border with Iraq.

Colonel Ryan Dillon, spokesman for the US-led coalition fighting ISIL in Iraq and Syria, said he was unable to confirm whether the convoy that was transporting the fighters had reached Deir Ezzor. The deal included providing information on the location of 10 Lebanese soldiers presumably killed by the jihadists, returning the bodies of Hizbollah and Iranian fighters and releasing Hizbollah fighters held prisoner by ISIL. There were near-weekly predictions that liberating the city was at hand.

Direct Line Insurance Group Shares Recommendation Reiterated by Goldman Sachs Group,
The Company's North America segment includes Courseware, Assessments and Services businesses in the United States and Canada. Berenberg now has a GBX 1700.00 target price per share on the 9.00B GBP market cap company or -4.79% downside potential.

At that point, regime forces halted their advance, using the Euphrates River as a natural barrier between them and the PKK/PYD. "Besides, there are some internal army proceedings that Shoigu needed to fix".

An estimated 93,500 people in the city require urgent assistance, according to a statement released today by Ali Al-Za'tari, the UN Resident/Humanitarian Coordinator for Syria.

Under ISIL, residents of the city - women and girls in particular - lacked access to basic reproductive health services and supplies.

Daesh overran most of Deir ez-Zour in mid-2014, before which some 230,000 people had lived in the province.

Islamist paramilitaries seeking autonomy for the south, a wider political goal, had been active for more than a decade and even came quite close to a peace agreement with the Manila government.

The lack of basic supplies and the constant shelling made the living conditions in the city unbearable, another young woman recalls. "I believe the talks over the future of Syria are coming up to the highest levels now", - said Frolov, who said this argument was among potential issues on the agenda during Shoigu's visit.
