BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:50 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continued their push towards the strategic Al-‘Umar Oil Fields, today, liberating a new town along the eastern bank of the Euphrates River.

Led by the 4th Mechanized Division and 5th Legion, the Syrian Arab Army attacked the town of Hatla Al-Shaqiyah in eastern Deir Ezzor, resulting in a fierce battle with the so-called Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists in the area.

Not long after launching their attack, the Syrian Arab Army announced the full liberation of Hatla Al-Sharqiyah, as the remaining Islamic State terrorists were forced to retreat south along the Euphrates.

With Hatla Al-Sharqiyah liberated and Al-Mayadeen fully surrounded, the Syrian Army should make their move on the Al’Umar Oil Fields in the coming weeks.

I’m Vietnamese. My name is Nguyen The Bien. I live at Ho Chi Minh City. I admire Syria’s president Bashar Al – Assad and Syrian people. I desire the Syrian Arab Army to quickly destroy IS terrorists and peace comes quickly to the people of Syria.

Al-Mayadeen is “fully surrounded” from one side only. Hatlah is some 50 kilometers from Omar oil fields, with SDF and IS held territory in between. And in several weeks, at this pace, the SDF will reach Kuwait. What kind of an analysis or opinion have you given in this article??? Do you have a map at all??? Can you please just present facts, and nothing more?

Well.. I heard that SDF is also getting bogged down in Raqqah … in your opinion why haven’t SDF reached the al-Umar Oil Fields yet .. ? Unlike SAA … they are encountering minimal enemy resistance …
