DAMASCUS, SYRIA (5: 15 P.M.) – The Syrian Army has officially entered the big battle for al-Raqqa province as the self-proclaimed Islamic State recedes in its de-facto capital.

After completely expelling the terror group from the eastern countryside of Aleppo, the Syrian Army’s elite Tiger Forces is spearheading a massive assault in western countryside of al-Raqqa.

The troops managed to recapture several villages along with Rusafa Juncture; an imperative crossroad linking the Rusafa town and the Tabqa airbase with en equal distance of 30 km from each.

While the military operations are now technically taking place inside Raqqa province, the aim of this push is to force the Islamic State jihadists for a massive retreat from the stretching Khanasir plains; thus fully securing the Athriya-Raqqa road and Athriya-Khanasir route; the latter serves as the main supply line to the northern city of Aleppo.

Exciting! Well this is what I call a real battle gainst ISIS, not the happy go lucky stroll of the Kurds pretending to be fighting the non existing ISIS in Raqqa city.
