DAMASCUS Thomas Vanek Canucks Jersey , Sept. 29 (Xinhua) -- The Islamic State (IS) group cut off the main road to Syria's eastern province of Deir al-Zour, as the Syrian army laid a siege on the IS militants in areas under their control inside the province's capital city, activists said.


A large number of IS militants attacked Sholah, Kabajeb in the countryside of Deir al-Zour, on the main road leading to the capital city on Thursday.


The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the IS militants also captured a mountain overlooking the key city of Sukhneh in the countryside of the central province of Homs Jacob Markstrom Canucks Jersey , also on the road to Deir al-Zour.


The army secured those areas recently before the IS militants unleashed their surprise attack on Thursday.


The Observatory said Friday that the IS militants were advancing in the areas they attacked on Thursday.


The road from Damascus to Deir al-Zour stretches through the desert region in the remote eastern countryside of Homs province in central Syria all the way to reach Sholah and Kabajeb in the countryside of Deir al-Zour before entering the city.


The Syrian forces and its allies captured Sholah earlier this month when they broke the IS's three-year siege on Deir al-Zour capital city, and cleared the main road to the city.


Several checkpoints are set up across the road, surrounded by large swathes of desert, which makes it easy for IS militants to sneak in, particularly when the sun falls.


When Xinhua reporters visited Deir al-Zour last week Brandon Sutter Canucks Jersey , Russian military convoys were seen on the road, bringing in supplies and military gears.


Even though the main road has been cut off, the Syrian army still has access to the city through the western countryside of Deir al-Zour, particularly through the 137 Brigade base.


But inside Deir al-Zour, the Observatory said the Syrian army and its allies with the help of the Russian backup laid a siege on the IS-held areas in the capital city of Deir al-Zour and some surrounding areas.


The siege laid on IS inside the city is believed to be the main reason behind the extremists' attack to cut the road to Deir al-Zour Derek Dorsett Canucks Jersey , to divert the attention of the Syrian army and possibly open a breach into the city again.


Sources said the army sent reinforcements to regain areas they lost on the main road to Deir al-Zour.


Losing such areas by sudden attacks is not uncommon, as the IS militants frequently attack the road at the entrance of the northern city of Aleppo, which was fully recaptured by the army in December last year.


Deir al-Zour is regarded as the most important stronghold for IS due to its proximity to IS-held areas in neighboring Iraq and its richness in oil and gas fields.


In Damascus, the Observatory said at least 50 Syrian soldiers were killed on Thursday in an ambush in the eastern neighborhood of Ayn Tarma, where the army was fighting the al-Qaida-linked militants.


The war on IS and the al-Qaida-linked militants of the Nusra Front and its allies is ongoing in Syria Christopher Tanev Canucks Jersey , as both groups are losing ground and excluded from any settlement, which explains their desperate attacks to survive at a time when the general atmosphere in Syria indicates a near-solution to the six-year war.

China’s home-developed C919 airliner takes off on its second test flight from Shanghai’s Pudong International Airport yesterday. The plane will compete for orders worldwide with the Airbus 320 and Boeing’s latest 737. — Zhang Haifeng

CHINA’S first home-developed narrow-body twinjet airliner, the C919 Michael Del Zotto Canucks Jersey , completed its second test flight yesterday from Pudong International Airport in Shanghai.


The C919 single-aisle aircraft — No. 10101 — which made its maiden flight from the same airport on May 5, took off at 7:22am, returning at 10:08am.


It flew north to Chongming Island and over Nantong in neighboring Jiangsu Province and circled for a while over Jiangsu before heading for home, according to the Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China.


Its flying time of 2 hours and 46 minutes was double that of its maiden flight, COMAC said.


“Furthermore Authentic Sam Gagner Jersey , the jet completed its first time mission to release and lift the landing gear in the air along with other tests,” a COMAC official said.


Cai Jun, captain on the maiden flight, was also the test pilot for the C919’s second flight. Another two pilots and two engineers were onboard.


On its maiden flight, the jet’s landing gear remained down. During yesterday’s flight it also flew higher and faster.


A batch of tests and improvements had been carried out following the maiden flight in May Authentic Markus Granlund Jersey , COMAC said. Before yesterday’s flight, the jet had completed a number of taxiing tests at the Pudong airport.


“Frequent test flights will be carried out on the jet at the Pudong airport,” Cai said.


After these tests, the aircraft will be moved to Yanliang in northwest Shaanxi Province for more, he said.


The aircraft rolled off the assembly line in Shanghai in November 2015 Authentic Sven Baertschi Jersey , a milestone for the nation’s entry into the global aviation market as a strong competitor.


A second C919 aircraft made for test flights is taking shape at a COMAC plant in Shanghai. This second plane is expected to make its first flight later this year, COMAC said.
