Over the last 3 days, the Syrian Arab Army’s 555th Brigade of the 4th Mechanized Division – backed by Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra (Desert Hawks Brigade), Fouj Al-Joulan (Golani Regiment), the National Defense Forces (NDF), and the pro-government Palestinian militia “Liwaa Al-Quds” (Jerusalem Brigade) – have made several advances in the eastern Hama countryside, as they continue to push northeast towards the strategic Tabaqa Military Airport in the Al-Raqqa Governorate.

Late last night, the Syrian Arab Army’s 555th Brigade carried out a successful military operation to cutoff the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) at the Zakiyah crossroad that leads into the Hama Governorate’s eastern countryside.

This successful military operation was carried out by the government forces after they reached the village of Zakiyah on Friday afternoon.

With the Zakiyah crossroad under their control in southern Al-Raqqa, the Syrian Armed Forces have successfully sealed off the Salamiyah-Raqqa Highway in the Hama Governorate.

More importantly, the imperative town of Ithriyah is no longer threatened by the ISIS terrorists that wrecked havoc on the Syrian government’s only supply route to the Aleppo Governorate along the Khanasser-Ithriyah Road.

Currently, the Syrian Armed Forces are approximately 35 km away from the Tabaqa Military Airport – the capture of this site is their primary objective in Al-Raqqa at the moment.
