    Militants of Daesh terrorist group fired mortar shells at residential areas of Syria’s Deir ez-Zor, killing at least one person and wounding 17 others, local media reported Saturday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The al-Qusour neighborhood of the city has become the target of the shelling, SANA news agency said.

    Syrian government forces have control over a half of Deir ez-Zor, which has been besieged by Daesh for over three years. 

    The Syrian forces continue an offensive aimed at lifting the siege and creating supply lines for the city’s residents. Currently, the only means of delivering supplies to the city is by air.
