DAMASCUS (Sputnik) — Control over the Deir ez-Zor province is shared by the Syrian army and Daesh, which is outlawed in Russia.
"The army has repulsed strong Daesh attacks on al-Bagilya settlement, and an attack on the water supply facilities in the west of Deir ez-Zor. Aviation bombed places where the terrorists concentrated in the west and north-west of Deir ez-Zor," the source said.
Syria has been in the state of civil war since 2011. On February 27, a ceasefire worked out by Russia and the United States took effect in the country. Terrorist groups are not covered by the agreement.
