Syria drives terrorists out of Deir al-Zour
 Part of channel(s): Syria (current event)

The Syrian army has cleared the eastern city of Deir el-Zour of terrorists after heavy clashes with terrorists operating in the area near the Iraqi border.

The terrorist Free Syrian Army has also confirmed that the army has taken full control of the city and that the terrorists were forced to flee Deir el-Zour.

Some reports, however, suggest that the terrorists are now taking shelter in homes and apartments, using civilians as human shields.

Deir el-Zour is the third terrorist stronghold to fall to government control. Syrian troops had earlier defeated Free Syrian Army in Homs and Idlib.

In recent days, terrorist groups fighting against Syria have repeatedly called on the countries supporting chaos in Syria, including Saudi Arabia and Qatar, to send in more weapons, saying that they are losing the battle to government over lack of guns and ammunition.

Saudi Arabia and Qatar have said that they support the idea of sending weapons to terrorist groups, who have been fighting against Syria since last year.
