    The Syrian Army, supported by the Russian Air Force, has fully liberated the city of As-Sukhnah (al-Sukhneh) from Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS), opening the road to the besieged enclave of Deir ez-Zor, says the Russian Defense Ministry.

    As-Sukhnah, liberated on Sunday, was the last major city held by IS in the Syrian province of Homs.

    “The liberation of As-Sukhnah from IS opens possibilities for Syrian government forces to advance and unblock the city of Deir ez-Zor,” the ministry said.
