The hospital was under IS control for several hours before Syrian Government forces reclaimed it, according to SOHR. Reports through the BBC said more than 20 IS fighters were killed, while activists said medical staff were seized as hostages and IS fighters also killed 35 pro-government fighters.

The UN has been providing food and medicine to the besieged by airdrop, The Washington Post reports. The Russian Defence Ministry said they airdropped 38.5 tonnes of aid to the besieged city.

Local reports claim civilians in outlying towns in the Deir Ezzour Governate suffered casualties on Monday as a result of US Coalition air-raids in Bukumal while IS shells killed a child and injured fourteen others in al-Qusour and al-Joura.

This year is the fifth year of the Syrian conflict which has seen over three million refugees flee Syria and 6.5 million displaced within the Middle-Eastern country as a result of violent clashes from several different Government, rebel and militant groups.
