The ISIS terrorist group pulled the remaining pockets of its forces back from a strategic airport in Eastern Deir Ezzor under the heavy offensive of the pro-government forces and after sustaining large casualties.

The anti-terrorism fighters stormed the ISIS strongholds around al-Hamdan airport five kilometers to the West of Albu Kamal near the border with Iraq and captured the airport following hours of non-stop battle.

In relevant developments in the province on Tuesday, the Syrian Army troops, backed up by the country's warplanes, repelled ISIL's offensive on government forces' positions in the Southern side of the city of Deir Ezzor, forcing them to retreat.

The Syrian soldiers fended off ISIS's attacks to break through the government forces' defense lines in al-Tharda Mountain, which inflicted a heavy death toll of the terrorists.

The Syrian army aircraft, for its part, played very crucial role in defeating the ISIS, FNA reported.
