BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) resumed their offensive in the western countryside of Al-Raqqa, Saturday, targeting a string of villages and hilltops located directly west of the Thawrah  and Sufyan oil fields.

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:

  • Madafah ‘Awijan
  • Al-Bukhmis
  • Bir Al-Sidran
  • Rajm Al-Hawrah
  • Akho Hadlah
  • Hajj Mafdi
  • Bir Al-‘Adad
  • Bir Abu Al-Sinabil
  • Bir Al-‘Amalah
  • Tal Rajm Al-‘Amalah
  • Masaken Al-Thawrah
  • Bir Al-Ja’ef
  • Bir Moussa Al-Mohandes
  • Bir Abu Hamat

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.
