Syria war: Stranded IS convoy reaches Deir al-Zour

Towards war's end in Syria

Earl Brown told The Daily Beast.

A U.S. official told ABC News that the individual is still overseas, as the Department of Justice and the Trump administration determine how to move forward.

The Syrian Army has taken control of oilfields and a gas refinery near Deir ez Zor, according to a state news outlet Russia Today.

The country has repeatedly fired salvos of such missiles, from both the sea and mainland Russia.

More than 330,000 people have been killed in Syria since the conflict began in March 2011 with anti-government protests before spiralling into a bloody civil war.

He said Islamic State had "shown fierce resistance" when SDF fighters entered the outskirts of Deir al-Zor on the eastern bank of the Euphrates.

Breaking IS' three-year siege on Deir al-Zour has been carried out in three stages; the first is breaking the siege on the Brigade 137 west of the city, the second phase was breaking the siege imposed on the airbase of Deir al-Zour. But none of these conversations involved the representatives of the Federation of Northern Syria and the VTS (although the representatives of Russia repeatedly proposed to include them in the negotiation process).

Bernie Sanders Introduces His Medicare for All Act
Everything from emergency surgery to prescription drugs, from mental health to eye care, would be covered, with no co-payments. It now has about 15 co-sponsors attaching their name to the legislation, including the party's reputed presidential aspirants.

The detainee was not identified, and further details of his surrender and detention were not made available.

In that case, the other boastful president involved in the Philippines crisis will face a real dilemma.

The United States is supporting the Syrian Democratic Forces, a Kurdish-Arab alliance that opposes the regime, as they advance toward Deir ez-Zor in an effort to capture the Euphrates River valley. This is a dramatic turn of affairs. "The areas that have been ceded, if you will, is open territory, open ground", Col. Dillon said. Opening the land route to the city allowed a reliable supply route to be established. He might very well have been in the mood for concessions from a position of strength. On Thursday, a captive Hezbollah fighter was released. He said that the pace of battles had increased after Assad's forces broke the siege during fighting with ISIS days ago.

Abdrakhmanov also said that a seventh round of talks in Astana was planned for the end of October. Therefore, the most difficult task of the liberation of Deir ez-Zor will decide the soldiers of the Syrian army.

Therefore, probably, the SDS attracted to attack on ISIS in Deir ez-Zor part of the units, previously employed in the assault on Raqqa.

Islamist paramilitaries seeking autonomy for the south, a wider political goal, had been active for more than a decade and even came quite close to a peace agreement with the Manila government. The major part and the lead of the SDF consists of YPG.
