Syria succeeded in occupying the last headquarters of ISIS

The Syrian army and its allies captured the town of Albu Kamal, ISIS's last headquarters in Syria, which was the end of the ISIS project in the region. This was stated by the army's general commander.

The Syrian military has said that it will now take the last remaining ISIS headquarters in the country's eastern desert, a military statement said.

"The liberation of Albu Kamal city is very important because it marks the fall of the ISIS terrorist organization project in the region," said a statement from the general committee, told Reuters on Thursday (9/11/2017).
In addition to Lebanon's Hezbollah and other Shia militias, and backed by Iran and Russia, Syrian troops have recently seized the ISIS-held area. Albu Kamal town near the Euphrates River, is located in Syria's eastern province of Deir Zor on the Iraqi border.

Just before, Syrian government forces managed to drive the last ISIS fighters from the eastern city of Deir ez-Zor in a two-month operation supported by Russian air power, according to a monitoring group. The Syrian and Russian regimes managed to besiege an area in the city in early September.

In addition, on Friday 20 October, the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) officially announced the Raqqa release from ISIS after a four-month battle. The city is planned to be included as part of the Syrian federal territory.
US President Donald Trump praised the success of Syrian opposition forces freeing Raqqa City from the ISIS militant group. Trump called the success an important milestone that will soon end ISIS history.
