The Syrian army said it fully liberated on Saturday the city of Sukhneh, the last Islamic State (IS) stronghold in Homs province.

The Syrian Army released footage on Sunday (August 13) of the barren streets of al-Sukhna, northeast of the ancient city of Palmyra, following the withdrawal of Islamic State soldiers.

The SDF is now focused on capturing Raqqa city from Islamic State.

At the moment, ISIS controls almost entire Deir al-Zor, while the Syrian government holds a small enclave in Deir al-Zor city, and a nearby military base. The Syrian government still controls a pocket of territory in Deir Al Zor city, and a nearby military base.
