BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:45 P.M.) – Elite Syrian Arab Army forces are on the verge of expelling Islamic State militants from Al-Mayadeen – the jihadist faction’s capital – following a huge advance today that shattered the terrorist group’s main line of defense within the city.

According to military sources exclusive to Al-Masdar News, the elite Tiger Forces of the Syrian Army made a powerful push today ejecting Islamic State militants from a number of neighborhoods inside Al-Mayadeen.

Military reports say that the Tiger Forces liberated the al-Baloum district, the al-Baloum roundabout, al-Ballout district, the city electrical station, the al-Madeha district, al-Taibah district and half of the Sinaa district.

By this advance, the Syrian Army has taken control of about 60 percent of Al-Mayadeen and cornered ISIS jihadists in the northern sector of the city.

Furthermore, the Tiger Forces have cut all ISIS supply lines running from the strategic border town of Abu Kamal, to the southeast of Al-Mayadeen. The situation for Islamic State fighters is made even worse by the fact that Russian airpower continues to carry out dozens of sorties in and around the city, suppressing their defenses and limiting their tactical mobility.
