Few days later, GoS forces continued their advances and broke the siege on the military airbase and the adjacent civilian neighbourhoods. Away from the city, hostilities between ISIL on one hand and GoS forces and the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) continued, causing the displacement of more than 100,000 people from/within Deir Ez-zor Governorate. Also in the east, the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) offensive against ISIL in Ar-Raqqa City continued with the latter being confined only to few neighbourhoods in the central part of the city.
