BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:50 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has been rapidly advancing in the southeastern countryside of the Al-Raqqa Governorate recently, liberating dozens of villages that were once occupied by the so-called Islamic State (ISIL).

On Tuesday, the Syrian Arab Army continued to dominate the southeastern countryside of Al-Raqqa, taking control of Numaysiyah, Jaber, and Khamaysiyah near the western bank of the Euphrates River.

As a result of their advance on Tuesday, the Syrian Arab Army positioned themselves within two kilometers of Ma’adan, which is the Islamic State’s last stronghold in the southeastern countryside of Al-Raqqa.

Due to its proximity to the Deir Ezzor provincial border and the Euphrates River, Ma’adan is a top priority for the Syrian Army’s High Command, as their offensive contingency relies on taking this town.
