Deir ez-Zor - SMART

ISIS attacked several loyalist locations in the Eastern Deir ez-Zor countryside, blowing up three car bombs and gaining control of an oil field. At the same time, loyalist forces' warplanes raided ISIS locations in the area.

Activists said that ISIS performed what can only be described as "violent" attacks on loyalist locations in the villages of al-Matardah, al-Sukkaryiah and Wadi Boqaye, in addition to the locations south of the Akash oilfield, and west of Abu Kamal city in the Southeastern Deir ez-Zor countryside.

The activists added that ISIS launched its attacks from the Syrian al-Hamad desert area. ISIS fighters carried out three suicide attacks here, which allowed them to seize control of the Ratqah oilfield, Western Abu Kamal, and to capture seven loyalist fighters.

In retaliation, suspected Russian warplanes targeted the ISIS-controlled town of al-Baghouz in the Abu Kamal countryside, destroying several civilian houses and causing other material damage.

Earlier, activists said that ISIS attacked a Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) vehicle near the oilfields of al-Horagy, Northern Deir ez-Zor, which killed and injured SDF fighters.

Days earlier, an ISIS attack on loyalist locations in Eastern Deir ez-Zor killed dozens of fighters belonging to the loyalist forces and their allied militias. Before this, ISIS had gained control of the town of al-Shaafah after clashing with the SDF.

Several areas of Deir ez-Zor are home to interrupted clashes between the loyalist forces and ISIS. Despite this, ISIS has retreated and lost control over large areas in recent months, espeially after clashing with Russian-Iranian-backed loyalist forces, and the International Coalition-supported SDF.
