From report, the Deir Az Zor city has been possessed by the Syria's Army from ISIL.

Deir Az Zor had been almost entirely controlled by ISIL since 2014. It is the main city of the oil-rich province of the same name. But now the Syria's military and allied forces have completely recaptured Deir Az Zor city from ISIL, the armed group's last urban stronghold in the war-torn country.

The campaign to retake the city began in September when Syrian forces managed to break the three-year siege on the city by ISIL.
The forces of Syria's President Bashar al-Assad have been backed by Russian air raids since September 2015, helping to turn the tide in the war against ISIL and other armed groups.
A US-led international coalition, meanwhile, has provided air support to a Kurdish-Arab alliance, the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), also fighting ISIL in Deir Az Zor.
