BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:05 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) kicked off Friday morning with a bang, liberating several points that were under the Islamic State’s (ISIS) occupation along the Deir Ezzor-Mayadeen Highway.

Led by the Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army continued their push along the Deir Ezzor-Mayadeen Highway, killing and wounding scores of ISIS militants north of the terrorist group’s capital.

The Syrian Army was able to seize several heights that were overlooking the highway, putting them within striking distance of the northern gates of the Islamic State’s capital city.

In addition to the the advance by the Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army’s 4th Division and 5th Legion resumed their offensive along the eastern bank of the Euphrates River; they are steadily progressing south towards the Al-‘Umar Oil Fields.

More details to come as the battle progresses today…

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.
