Syria's army retakes Deir Az Zor from ISIL

ISIS's self-declared caliphate lies in ruins after the terror group was driven from its last strongholds in Syria and Iraq.

Video broadcast on state-run media showed the last moments of the ferocious fighting in Deir el-Zour, including shelling by Syrian tanks and plumes of smoke rising over the city's mostly destroyed neighborhoods of Jamiayat and Jabiliyeh before they were liberated.

A suicide auto bomb exploded on Saturday in Syria's eastern city of Deir al-Zor, killing and injuring dozens, the Syrian state news agency SANA reported.

The city is the provincial capital of surrounding Deir Ezzor province, an oil-rich region that sits on the county's eastern border with Iraq.

Despite being driven out from large parts of Deir az-Zour, IS still controls 37 percent of the province and its fighters are deployed in the eastern side.

Sindhu boarded flight 6E608 Hyderabad-Mumbai carrying oversized baggage which was not fitting into the overhead bin". Sindhu said that she was treated rudely by a groundstaff named Ajeetesh, on 6E 608 IndiGo flight.

In Iraq, troops recaptured the town of Qaim across the border from Boukamal, the government said.

The leader released a statement congratulating Iraqis "in the wake of heroes taking control of Qaim and liberating it in record time".

The jihadist group has lost much of the territory it once held in the province.

In September, the battle to expel ISIS from the city began.

The full liberation of the eastern city of Deir Ezzor is an important step made by the Syrian Arab Army towards fully eliminating of ISIL from all the Syrian territory and foiling all the attempts of the US-led global coalition that are aimed at prolonging the existence of the terrorist organization to implement its anti -Syrian agenda. The talks, sponsored jointly with Iran and Turkey, have brokered local deals that have significantly reduced violence in the country.
