BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:00 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched a major operation this week to secure the main roads that link the governorates of Hama and Deir Ezzor, along with Al-Raqqa and Homs.

The operation was specifically targeting the areas where Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) terrorists have been wreaking havoc over the last few weeks.

In footage filmed by Ruptly, the Syrian Army can be seen carrying out an operation approximately 90 kilometres (56 miles) southwest of Raqqa city on Wednesday.

“We came to complete the mine-clearing operation in the countryside of the Syrian semi-desert, connected to the countryside of Salamiyah, the countryside of Homs, and the countryside of Raqqa,” an SAA soldier stated, adding “as well as to track ISIS members and complete the military combing operation of the entire area.”

The soldier pointed out that the operation is also targeting the Al-Taim Oil Fields in western Deir Ezzor because this is one of the most important sites in the region.

In the video, the Syrian Army and the Palestinian-led Liwaa Al-Quds forces can be seen burning the Islamic State flags, while also eliminating terrorist dens.

 

ISIS has recently intensified their in both Syria and Iraq, as they have taken advantage of the coronavirus pandemic.
