BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:20 A.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIL) is in serious trouble in Al-Raqqa’s southwestern countryside, as the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) closes on the strategic town of Resafa.

Earlier today, the Syrian Arab Army’s Tiger Forces liberated at least 14 sites in western Al-Raqqa, inching them closer to the Resafa Junction and its nearby town.

Making matters worse for ISIL, the Syrian Arab Army’s advance east towards Resafa also leaves the latter within 125km of Deir Ezzor City, which is closer than their forces pushing from Palmyra.

This latest advance by the Syrian Arab Army also comes at the same time the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) storm Raqqa City.
