Deir ez-Zor, Syria – At least 50 militants fighters of the Islamic State (IS/ISIL) were killed during the last two days in Deir ez-Zor province, eastern Syria, due to military operations by the Syrian regime’s army.

The pro-regime military forces targeted a training camp of IS militants in the countryside of Deir ez-Zor on Saturday evening, causing damage to ammunitions and the death of dozens of IS fighters, local sources told ARA News.

“The pro-Assad warplanes targeted the training camp of the Islamic State near the salt mine in Deir ez-Zor’s countryside, killing more than 50 IS extremists,” activists told ARA News.

The salt mine is part of the main headquarters of the Islamic State in the western countryside of Deir ez-Zor, located on the right bank of the Euphrates River in al-Tabni area (50 km west of the city of Deir ez-Zor).

According to sources in the IS-held city of Raqqa in eastern Syria, dozens of corpses of dead members of IS arrived in the National Hospital in the city on Sunday morning, following air strikes against their strongholds in Deir ez-Zor.

Meanwhile, four civilians were reported dead in the IS-held town of Maadan, east of Raqqa, on Sunday, as pro-Assad warplanes launched missile attack against the town.
