Footage shows engineering divisions employing a pontoon to enable passage for troops and equipment over to the eastern banks, consolidating their position and allowing for access to the northern sector of Deir-ez-Zor, where the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIS/ISIL) recently lost their three-year hold. Soldiers were able to remove IS militants and free several villages within a few hours.
