    Deir Ezzor (Qasioun) – The Russian forces, that backs up the Syrian regime eastern Deir Ezzor, are establishing a military bridge between the Euphrates river shores to join Deir Ezzor city and villages held by the Syrian regime forces northern Euphrates river.

    The bridge securing the facility of reaching Deir Ezzor city to (Murat, Khasham, Tabya and Hatla) villages, these villages are the only points where the Russian forces are existing in the Eastern Shore of Euphrates river, as it was a launching point for its military operations toward Koniko oil field northeastern Deir Ezzor.

    Russian forces, backed up by Vagnar Militias, tried to advance towards the field, but the US-Led Coalition airstrikes on its positions in the previous villages, and led to eliminate more than 150 militiamen.
