BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:45 P.M.) – Not long after liberating the strategic city of Maskanah in the southeastern countryside of Aleppo, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) made its first push towards the Al-Raqqa Governorate’s provincial border.

Led by their elite Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army stormed the villages of ‘Aziziyeh Al-Hajj and Khirbat Al-Anz in the Maskanah countryside; this resulted in a short battle with the Islamic State (ISIL) militants in the area.

According to a military source in Aleppo, the Syrian Arab Army liberated ‘Aziziyeh Al-Hajj and Khirbat Al-Anz this afternoon, following a short exchange with the Islamic State forces.

As a result of today’s gains, the Syrian Armed Forces now find themselves near Aleppo-Raqqa axis for the first time in the last four years.

Why isn’t the Syrian Army using paratroops to parashute troops behind enemy lones to reach Deir Ezzur and start attacking the US proxies from behond? It has control of the airspace so why not utilizing it. The Russians can help in this too.

They would love to that but given the strategic importance of not falling for the American-isis-kudish alliance, they would prefer to let Isis get bugged up around panorama. I believe that the next things will be that Russia will launch various missiles in that direction to kill more isis American foot soldiers.

Muhaha, Muslim Brotherhood or Turkish MIT spotted!
Takfiri infestation in AMN!!!!
YPG with IS? ROFL! Komrads in YPG complain not having their own A-10 or AC-130.
With a dozen AC-130 in their hands, IS and other Quadans would be laminated for a while now!
Kuffar strong, all day long!
