Syrian army says will continue until stability restored across Syria

BEIRUT (Reuters) - The Syrian army said on Friday it would continue to wage war against Islamic State and “other terrorist groups” until security and stability are restored to all Syrian territory.

The pledge came in a statement, read out on state television, that announced the army’s complete capture of Deir al-Zor in eastern Syria from Islamic State.
