Led by their elite Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army advanced west from the recently liberated Sufyan Oil Fields towards several villages along the Salamiyah-Raqqa Highway.

The Syrian Army assault would prove effective, as their forces liberated the following sites:

  • Bir Al-Sidran
  • Rajm Al-Hawrah
  • Akho Hadlah
  • Hajj Mafdi
  • Bir Al-‘Adad

  • Tal Rajm Al-‘Amalah
  • Masaken Al-Thawrah
  • Bir Al-Ja’ef
  • Bir Moussa Al-Mohandes

The Syrian Arab Army is currently expanding west towards the Islamic State’s Khanasser pocket in order to secure their only supply route to the Aleppo Governorate.
