BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army is steadily advancing along the Deir Ezzor-Raqqa border, liberating several sites from the so-called Islamic State (ISIL) terror organization.
Led by the Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army began the day by liberating three towns in northwest Deir Ezzor, paving the way for their forces to push north along the Ma’adan Road.
Following the liberation of the three towns, the Syrian Arab Army continued their march towards Ma’adan, seizing control of Ma’adan Atiq, which is a small town at the Deir Ezzor-Raqqa border.
As a result of today’s advance, the Syrian Arab Army is only 6km away from Ma’adan, leaving the remaining ISIL terrorists with their backs against the wall in this part of the Euphrates River Valley.
