BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:45 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched an important counter-attack in the southeastern countryside of the Al-Raqqa Governorate, yesterday, in order to recapture the oil rich area they lost to the Islamic State terrorists in the Euphrates Valley.

Led by the Tiger Forces and 5th Legion, the Syrian Arab Army were able to advance and liberate the Jararih Oil Field at the outskirts of Salaam ‘Alaykum village yesterday night.

According to a military report, the Syrian Army encircled the ISIL forces at the Jararih Oil Field, yesterday, before storming their points.

The report added that all of the Islamic State terrorists present at the Jararih Oil Field were eliminated during the brief government counter-attack.

ISIL held this oil field for a few hours on Monday after they launched a big attack using four suicide bombers to penetrate the defenses of the 5th Legion.
