The Syrian Arab Army elite forces, known as the Tiger Forces, have managed to take control over Hmaimiyah hill from the ISIS terrorist group.

With the control of this hilltop, the Tiger Forces are now imposing fire control over Hmaimiah Saghirah and Hmaimiyah Kabirah, in eastern Aleppo countryside.

According to an Al-Masdar News correspondent, the Syrian air forces have conducted several air strikes on Rasm Al-Imam town.

The ISIS-associated Amaq agency said that over 50 airstrikes targeted their positions.

The Syrian Army is now only within 4km of the imperative city of Deir Hafir. By capturing it, the road to Raqqa would be clear.

That open the road to the south. With Deir Hafer besieged, the Kweires airport will be more secure.

Yes. And maybe they can link up with the Kurdish near Lake Assad. And maybe secure that water canal that leads towards Aleppo? Improved options. IMHO.

Concuerdo con tu opinión, si enlaza con los Kurdos corta el avance de los mercenarios de Erdogan.

Right : the water canal is a major target. And join with the kurd is implicit. That will be done, 100%. When done, SAA will turn to the south or/and to Taqaba.

Taqaba looks cool for a spring outage on the road to the SDF at Raqqa and finally to Deir Ezzor. Smile.

Syrian army is getting better and better day after day. After they get back Deir Hafer, syrian army will brake a big terrorist’s bone. I am expecting after that a major wave of success against those cockroaches. Their days are coming to the end. Hopefully the virgins will be enough for them…

The same wish here. Join with the Kurds at the lake Assad. Block the way for Erdogan.
