Major part of the city, except for some small neighborhoods, fell to the terrorists in the initial stages of the Syrian conflict and remained as such to date. However, they still control rural areas outside the city and the border with Iraq.

"There are plenty of ISIS fighters and resources and leaders that continue to have holdouts throughout the Middle Euphrates River Valley", Dillon said. This, perhaps, is to add a number of areas, particularly in the area of Idlib, which is controlled by a terrorist organization "dzhebhat an-Nusra" (banned in Russia).

Russian submarines and surface warships in the Mediterranean have fired cruise missiles at Islamic State targets several times in recent months at various locations around Syria.

And many of the US-led coalition's local allies hail from the area and are eager to return home, something made more complicated by regime gains in the area. Earlier this week, the extremists shelled the government stronghold of Salamiyeh that is home to members of the minority Ismaili sect, a branch of Shiite Islam.

But "right now, we have a schedule that we're following which is the liberation of the eastern riverbanks of the Euphrates", he said.

An American-born ISIS fighter has been captured in Syria by Kurdish forces, Betsy Woodruff and Spencer Ackerman of The Daily Beast report. The Hezbollah-negotiated deal allowed the evacuation in exchange for locating the remains of Lebanese soldiers and the release of fighters.

Assad aide Bouthaina Shaaban later said the Syrian government was ready to fight the SDF.

Fox News reported the American surrendered.

But the US-led coalition pounded the road to Deir Ezzor with air strikes to prevent the convoy reaching the IS-held town of Albukamal on the Iraqi border.

These precedents advise a considerable degree of caution. In March 2016, a US citizen was captured in Iraq by US-backed Kurdish Peshmerga forces. Meanwhile, the third member of that "axis of evil" - North Korea - is more defiant than ever.

[Deir ez-Zor] had been besieged by Daesh for three years and all attempts to liberate it had previously failed. Some, though, took a harder line. He fled to Turkey before returning to Syria and joining the SDF. This is a dramatic turn of affairs.

"Their defeat here helped to carry out the offensive on Deir el-Zour, reach the Euphrates River and break the siege and liberate Deir el-Zour", said Lt. Gen Alexander Lapin, chief of staff of the Russian forces in Syria. There was no food, no medicine, no electricity and no water. Analysts further highlighted the Filipino forces' poor intelligence capabilities.

"We're not going to be satisfied until we see a strong and stable Syria". The costs are immense.

"As far as Syria is concerned, we have very little to do with Syria other than killing ISIS", Trump said last week during a joint news conference with the head of Kuwait. Behind Duterte's well-known bluster, the weaknesses of his army have been revealed.

Abu Kholed would not say whether there were plans to advance on Deir Ezzor city itself.

"The regime was complicit in allowing them to link up with other ISIL fighters", Mr Dillon said. "The battles are continuous", he said.

But the first foreign terrorism suspect to face trial under the administration was brought to the United States for civilian trial.
