BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:35 P.M.) – The ANNA news group has released what it calls a ‘trailer’ covering the Al-Mayadeen battle that took place between Syrian pro-government forces and Islamic State terrorists two weeks ago.

Whilst most of the initially released Al-Mayadeen battle footage (captured by the Syrian Ministry of Defence and Hezbollah’s media wing) was of varying quality, ANNA’s footage has a unique value.

ANNA shows the battle from the perspective of Go-Pro cameras, slow motion shots and very high-definition video quality and demonstrates the vast array of weapons used by elite Syrian Arab Army forces during the operation.

Al-Mayadeen was chosen by ISIS to be its capital after the terrorist group relocated its administrative offices from Raqqa earlier in this year. The city was liberated by Syrian pro-government forces on the 14th of October after days of clashes in and around it.
