Our forces have encircled two armed groups affiliated with the security apparatus of the Syrian regime. The armed groups infiltrated Dhiban town, under cover of random artillery shelling, coming from Al-Mayadeen town on the western bank of the Euphrates River.
Immediate security measures have been taken by our forces to establish stability and security in the area. They have facilitated the movement of civilians to safe zones in neighboring villages, ensuring their safety and preventing the mercenary groups from using them in their terrorist acts either until the armed mercenary groups are eliminated or forced to surrender.
Throughout the clashes, a number of the armed groups were killed, and others sustained injuries, subsequently being transported to areas under the control of the Syrian regime on the western bank of the Euphrates River. Meanwhile, indiscriminate shelling with mortar shells and artillery, originating from regions under the regime’s control on the west bank of the Euphrates, resulted in injuries to a number of residents and inflicted material damage to their properties.
