The Syrian air force in a high-precision strike targeted and destroyed a mortar launch pad used by the ISIS terrorist group in Deir Ezzor.

The Syrian fighter jets struck the ISIS gathering centers and lines of defense near al-Jafra region on Friday, which ended in the destruction of a mortar platform.

The Syrian army and its popular allies are now readying for the final battle against the ISIS terrorists over al-Shoula region after capturing the key oil-rich region of al-Thayyem in the Southeastern province of Deir Ezzor.

Liberation of al-Shoula region will lead to the reopening of Homs-Damascus road and winning back Deir Ezzor city from the terrorists completely.

Meantime, the ISIS terrorist group announced that it has planted 2,000 mines in al-Janinah village in the Western parts of Deir Ezzor to prevent the Syrian army's advance in the region.

The Syrian Army soldiers backed by the National Defense Forces (NDF) reached the key oil-rich region of Thayyem on Thursday after a 48-hour battle with the militants of the ISIS terrorist group, battlefield reports said.

Along with capturing the Thayyem Oil Fields, the Syrian forces also advanced to the Gas Company Technical Institute after pushing thier way into nearby regions Southwest of the recently-liberated Tharda Mountains in Deir Ezzor province.

Thayyem Oil Fields no longer produce oil, but are still deemed of high value due to their closeness to the Deir Ezzor-Mayadin Highway, FNA reported.
