BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:30 P.M.) – Minutes ago, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) established full control over the Sufyan Oil Fields in western Al-Raqqa after a fierce battle against the Islamic State (ISIL) militants in the region.

Led by their elite Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army attacked the Islamic State’s positions at the Salamiyah-Raqqa Highway after successfully taking control of the Thawrah Oil Fields.

The Sufyan Oil Fields are located along the Salamiyah-Raqqa Highway, just north of the Waheb Oil Fields.

In addition to liberating the Sufyan Oil Fields, the Syrian Arab Army also took control of the villages of Sufyan and Rasm Al-Harrah.

The Syrian Arab Army has now set their sights on the Waheb Oil Fields in order to secure a large part of the Salamiyah-Raqqa Highway.
