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.
