BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:25 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched an important offensive in the western countryside of the Al-Raqqa Governorate, today, targeting the Islamic State’s (ISIL) last positions along the Ithriya-Raqqa Highway.

Led by their elite Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army attacked the Islamic State’s positions along the Ithriya-Raqqa Highway, inflicting heavy damage on the terrorist group’s defenses.

According to an Al-Masdar field correspondent, the Syrian Arab Army’s Tiger Forces are attempting to connect the Ithriya-Raqqa Highway from the town of Resafa in western Al-Raqqa to Ithriya in east Hama.

If the Syrian Army is successful, they will have the Islamic State surrounded from three different flanks in the Khansser Plain.
