Earlier today, the Syrian Arab Army’s 555th Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division – in close coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF), Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra (Desert Hawks Brigade), Fouj Al-Joulan (Golani Regiment), and the pro-government Palestinian militia “Liwaa Al-Quds” (Jerusalem Brigade) – continued their advance to the Al-Raqqa border and the Tabaqa Military Airport, capturing another hilltop along the Ithriyah-Raqqa Road.

According to a military source in eastern Hama, the Syrian Armed Forces imposed full control over Tal Madakhah after advancing from Tal Abu Zayn along the Ithriyah-Raqqa Highway, leaving less than 40 km of territory between them the Al-Raqqa Governorate border.

The source added that the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) is attempting to counter the Syrian Army’s recent gains in the Ithriyah countryside; however, they have been relatively unsuccessful so far.
