Syrian Army captures vital oil field from Islamic State

Damascus [Syria]: The Syrian Army captured a key oil field of Teym from the Islamic State (IS) in the countryside of Deir al-Zour province.

According to reports, the Army has progressively covered over the past 24 hours in reaching Deir al-Zour city from its main desert road.

Earlier this week, the Syrian Army and allied troops lifted the three-year-old siege by the IS of Deir al-Zour city through the Brigade 137 base in western Deir al-Zour.

This richly grown province is important for the Syrian Army due to its location near Iraq and also the energy fields around it.

Teym is one of the most important energy fields in Syria as it supports the electricity production to most Syrian cities. ( ANI)
