DAMASCUS, SYRIA (3:40 P.M.) – Moments ago, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) captured two towns on the Euphrates River after advancing some 35 kilometers through ISIS-held territory in rural Raqqa.

Back by pro-government tribal fighters, the SAA’s Tiger Forces dashed across eastern Raqqa and captured the neighboring towns of Dalha and Al-Aukarishi, thus reaching the Euphrates River in one of its largest single advances in 2017.

After establishing a corridor from the government mainland, SAA troops have created yet another ISIS pocket directly south of Raqqa city and simultaneously cutoff the rival US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) from snatching any more ISIS turf along the Euphrates River.

According to a military source debriefing Al-Masdar News, all reports indicating the SDF had entered Dalha and Al-Aukarishi in previous weeks are untrue.

With Deir Ezzor city only 80 kilometers away, the Tiger Forces – commanded by Major General Suheil Al-Hassan – have been tasked with pushing southeast along the M4-Highway, ultimately looking to lift the long-standing siege.

Perfecto!!! People in Itally (not the corrupt government) are with you Syria!!! It is a fact where US troops step only war and disaster comes (Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya…). Kurds don’t realize they are been used by USA. USA doesn’t have friends, only interest. Russia is the real deal. WW2 proves it!

that’s what I was suggesting if this news is true then atleast back yrad of SAA will be secured bcus sdf will not dare do anything to SAA . now it will be more easier to move towards dier zor city via raaqa/dierzor highway. and also advancing same time towards sukhanna . to grab big chunk of terriostry . but will be needed more of little reinforcement to guards in the western sector of liberated area. IN SHA ALLAH WITHIN 2 WEEKS SAA WILL BE IN SUKHANA AND DIERZOR CITY.

The real interesting topic is who is spreading these FAKE NEWS for the second time already in two days for what reason and why you do not check such nonsense for facts. Somebody is eagerly keen on the SDF and the SAA fighting each other instead of exterminating Daesh and Queda roaches each on their own terms. One should beware of the giant army of MIT trolls busy on all sites and blogs which try to provide real news about the ziofascist onslaught on Syria.
