BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:15 P.M.) – Footage has been released on pro-government social media showing a significant portion of the Syrian Arab Army’s campaign against Islamic State forces in and around the strategic city of Al-Mayadeen.
The footage, five minutes in length, showing the Syrian Army’s elite Tiger Forces Division conducting a powerful mechanized offensive against ISIS militants using modern battle tanks, gun-trucks, infantry fighting vehicles, rocket artillery and airpower.
Al-Mayadeen was officially liberated by pro-government forces yesterday following a week of intense firefights and airstrikes in and around the city.
Prior to its liberation, Al-Mayadeen served as the Islamic State’s de facto capital (a title formerly held by Raqqa until the terrorist group moved its administrative center several months ago).
