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.

Strategically and economically not important at all for the Syrian state and people. What is important is 80% of the oil and gas deposits on the Eastern banks of Deir Ezzur which it seems the Russians never really wanted the Syrian governnent and its forces to control for some behind the scenes reasons. There has been too much procrastination, inefficiency or both on the Russian/Syrian side in this vital battle which alowed the US/ISIS/Kurdish colonial imperialist forces to steal two of Syria’s major oil and gas installations thus far threatening Syria’s own existence as a sovereign and integral state.
