BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:53 P.M.) – The elite Tiger Forces of the Syrian Arab Army have made a massive advance against ISIS in northwest Deir Ezoor Governorate and are now on the verge of reaching Syrian troops in southeast Raqqa Governorate.
Today, the Tiger Forces kicked off a major operation, assaulting far beyond the northwestern limits of Deir Ezzor city and moving up the length of the western bank of the Euphrates River.
According to military sources, the Tiger Forces liberated the towns of al-Tabni, al-Turayif, al-Buwytiyah, Khan Zahra and al-Masrab during the course of this push.
Furthermore, the elite formation also secured the strategic Salim mountain range and the Manjm Al-Malah salt mines area.
By this advance, the Tiger Forces have reached the strategic town of Shamiya and are now somewhere between 25 to 30 kilometers away from reaching Syrian Army troops stationed in southeast Raqqa Governorate, themselves being near another strategic town – Ma’adan.
