Assad's office added that the meeting focused on recapturing Deir ez-Zor from IS and strengthening "efforts to combat terrorism in all Syrian territory until its utter annihilation". This was a deal struck by IS, the Syrian government, the Lebanese government, and Hezbollah.

"We fed our children with stale bread, cleaning the mold from it. We have long suffered from artillery strikes and shells; they usually hit civilians - children and women in particular", a local woman told RT.

Frolov points to another issue, raised by the French journal Intelligence Online a while ago, about the dispute between Lt. Gen. Sergei Rudskoy, chief of the Russian Defense Ministry's Main Operational Directorate, and Quds Force commander Maj. UNFPA's activities in Syria are supported by Canada, the European Commission and other donors.

A huge strain has been put on the city's healthcare system by a shortage of medical supplies, as well as a steady flow of people wounded by shelling. On Friday, the SDF captured Raqqa University.

The detainee was not identified, and further details of his surrender and detention were not made available.

Syria's eastern oil-rich Deir Ezzor province is increasingly falling under the control of Rusian-backed Syrian regime forces and the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

With the Syrian Army and its allies busy with the fight against the IS in Deir ez-Zor, HTS fighters have deepened their hold on Idlib in preparation for the inevitable attack by the Syrian Army. He said that so far the SDF fighters have met "light resistance".

Meanwhile, Hizbollah-affiliated media announced on Thursday that one of those prisoners, Ahmed Matouq, had arrived in Lebanon.

Abdrakhmanov also said that a seventh round of talks in Astana was planned for the end of October.

He said SDF fighters did not expect clashes with Syrian regime forces, but if fired upon "we will respond". In total, UN has managed 309 airdrops of aid on Deir ez-Zor during siege, said a spokesman in Geneva.

The two simultaneous offensives in the direction of the ISIS-held city raised the prospect of a clash over who would be able to claim the Deir Ezzor prize. He fled to Turkey before returning to Syria and joining the SDF. His language sounds dated, with the most anachronistic demand being the removal of Mr. Assad.

President Donald Trump's administration has several time changed its views and rhetoric regarding the Syrian president.
