BEIRUT: Syrian special forces yesterday destroyed a bridge over the Euphrates River used by Islamic State to move supplies in eastern Syria, media run by Hezbollah said.Tomorrow, I will put up a lengthier post regarding Syria.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which tracks the war, said an explosion had destroyed the bridge in Deir Al Zor city that is of vital importance to Islamic State as the only way for it to move into parts of the city it controls.
Islamic State seized control of most of Deir Al Zor province in July. Parts of Deir Al Zor city, including its airport, remain in government hands.
