Syrian Arab Army cleanses al-Boukamal of terrorism

Al-Boukamal city in Deir Ezzor province has been declared fully liberated as the units of the Syrian Arab Army eliminated the last hotbeds of Daesh (ISIS, ISIL, IS foreign-backed mercenary-terrorists) terrorists there.

SANA reporter in the city, which is located 140 km southeast of Deir Ezzor, said al-Boukamla is now clear of Daesh after the army and allied forces fought fierce clashes with the remaining terrorists over the past few hours after isolating the eastern side of the city.

The reporter said that about 150 terrorists retreated from al-Boukamal to the east of Euphrates River under the cover and protection of the US-led international coalition while others surrendered to the Syria Democratic Forces (SDF) groups that are supported by the U.S.
