"We salute the courage and dedication of the Syrian Arab Red Crescent volunteers". More than 93,000 residents were besieged by the Islamic State group who had controlled most of the city until last week. As the humanitarian aid began to flow into the Syrian stronghold, the locals recalled the horrors of the years-long siege.

Government forces, with the active help of Russian troops made their way to the city from the South-West and deblocked the garrison, which was under siege for more than three years.

Eleven buses carrying a total of 200 jihadists and 200 members of their families arrived in Deir al-Zour's al-Mayadeen area late Wednesday, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which independently monitors the conflict. But the early confidence that the Islamists would soon flee or be killed proved unfounded By mid-June there was growing evidence that Duterte's troops were relying heavily on air-power and artillery, which limited the rebels' hold but severely damaged the city and killed many civilians in the process.

Groups of SDS are now the main US ally in the Syrian war.

Pro-American forces in Syria are dominated by Kurds who seek self-government after the war.

Khawla said that the goal of their forces is to liberate every village on the eastern bank of the Euphrates up to the border with Iraq.

In the northern countryside of Hama, Russia deployed its military police in recently captured cities of Taibet al-Imam and Mahredah, Qasioun News reported.

Duterte's government failed to recognise the developing power of this enlarged cohort.

Analysts argue that the US attempts to foil any route contacts between the Resistance camp's countries that also include Iraq and Lebanon come to serve the Israeli security.

Earlier on Thursday, Russian submarines in the Mediterranean Sea fired several cruise missiles at areas held by Islamic State around Deir al-Zour, the Russian Defence Ministry said.

The projectiles destroyed control centers, communication hubs and arms dumps being used by the terrorists, the regime said.

The Pentagon's referral to the Justice Department indicated that the new American detainee would also be turned over to federal courts. The UN released a report that suggested that the Syrian government had used chemical weapons in Khan Sheikhoun in April (Syria denied that it had used toxic gases against its people because "it does not have them in the first place").
