Syrian army, allies seize oilfield from ISIS near Deir ez-Zor

(AhlulBayt News Agency) - The Syrian army and its allies recaptured an oilfield from ISIS near the eastern city of Deir al-Zor on Saturday in further advances against the militants, state TV reported.

Government forces this week broke through ISIS lines to reach a government-held enclave of the city besieged for years by the terrorists, and are fighting to reach a nearby air base which ISIS still surrounds.

On Saturday, the army and the allies fighting alongside it seized the Teym oilfield in desert south of Deir al-Zor, state TV said. Deir al-Zor is in an oil-rich area of Syria.
