BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:35 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) resumed their offensive in northern Syria, Monday, targeting the Islamic State’s (ISIL) last positions along the Raqqa-Aleppo axis.

Led by their elite Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army stormed a number of villages in western Al-Raqqa, striking the Islamic State’s weak defenses from the northern flank.

According to a military source from the Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army liberated more than 15 villages in the Al-Raqqa Governorate after a fierce battle with the Islamic State.

As a result of today’s advance, the Syrian Arab Army has reached parts of the Al-Raqqa Governorate that they have not seen since their withdrawal from the area in early 2013.

It is imperative they continue the drive straight into the city from the Southern axis to save the al-Raqqa civilians from sure extermination by the US and Kurdish/SDF forces.

Actually, it’s Kurdish and Syrian civilians that are at risk from FSA/Qaeda/ISIS.
YPG, Peshmergas, PMU and SAA are the best cockroaches exterminators in the Middle-East!
Shias in Eastern Saudi-Barbaria need an YPG.
