BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:40 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) made significant progress inside the strategic city of Al-Mayadeen, Thursday, liberating several districts that were occupied by the Islamic State (ISIS).
Led by the elite Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army managed to liberate the Al-Rashadeh District of Al-Mayadeen after a day-long battle inside the city.
With Al-Rashadeh liberated, the Syrian Arab Army completely enveloped Al-Mayadeen, leaving no outlet for the Islamic State terrorists to retreat from.
On Friday morning, the Syrian Arab Army resumed their assault on the city, striking the last half Al-Mayadeen that was occupied by the terrorist group.
Currently, the Syrian Arab Army is pushing deeper inside of Al-Mayadeen, while their allies from the Russian Aerospace Forces pound the Islamic State’s supply lines along the Euphrates River.
