Syria forces penetrate ISIS-held eastern province

Syrian regime forces on Friday broke into the eastern Deir al-Zor province for the first time since 2014, a monitor said, after seizing territory from ISIS.

Government forces control part of Deir al-Zor city and the adjacent military airport, but ISISholds the vast desert province and most of the provincial capital.

"Backed by Iranian, Lebanese and Iraqi fighters, the Syrian army entered Deir al-Zor province from the southeast, near the Iraqi border," said Rami Abdel Rahman, who heads the "Syrian Observatory for Human Rights" [so-called].

He said the pro-government forces had advanced eight kilometres (five miles) into the province.
