A Syrian state television and a military source have announced the complete recapture of Deir Az Zor city from ISIL.

The news came after the army and other allied forces eliminated the last remnants of Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant fighters from  the eastern city.

"The armed forces, in cooperation with allied forces, liberated the city of Deir Az Zor completely from the clutches of the Daesh terrorist organisation," the military source said, using an Arab acronym for ISIL.

ISIL had for years besieged a government enclave in the city until the army relieved it in early September.

Earlier,  army units, in cooperation with supporting forces, regained control over the city's al-Hamidya neighbourhood, the official SANA news agency said late on Thursday.
