    The Syrian army has destroyed a tunnel used by Daesh militants during the clashes in the embattled city of Deir ez-Zor, local media reported Sunday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to the Syrian Satellite Channel, the Syrian troops have exploded a 54-yard tunnel used by Daesh jihadists to move troops and munitions, killing all the terrorists inside it.
