The landmines planted by militants of the terrorist organization of ISIS have obstructed the progress of Syrian democratic forces,  backed by the International Coalition, in the last pocket of the organization on the eastern banks of the Euphrates River in Deir ez-Zor, eastern Syria.


The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported on Monday that Syrian democratic forces are progressing cautiously due to mines planted by ISIS in the vicinity of the area under their control which is the village of Al-Baghouz, the last foothold of the terrorist organization in Syria, with a smaller area in Deir ez-Zor and Homs.


The 'Hawar' news agency also reported renewed violent fighting between Syrian democratic forces and ISIS in the village.


In addition to landmines, ISIS used a variety of means to try to protect the area under their control, as they carried out a counter-attack with car bombs and suicide bombers wearing explosive belts.


According to the observatory, the last pocket of ISIS in Deir ez-Zor village shrank a lot and receded to 3 square kilometers, while the international coalition doubled artillery attacks and air strikes, and the Syrian democratic forces strengthened pressure on them to force gunmen of ISIS to surrender.
