Russia is currently engaged in assisting the Syrian army's operation in the Deir ez-Zor province aimed to completely eliminate terrorists' presence there, which was immediately launched after the breaking of the three-year ISIS siege of the city of Deir ez-Zor.
In the course of the operation, the Syrian governent forces gained control of the largest ISIS hotbed in the province, the town of al-Mayadeen.

According to data provided by Russian authorities, over 90 percent of the Syrian territory has already been freed from terrorists, with Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu saying that the military operation launched in September 2015 at the request of the Syrian leadership is close to its end.
