BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:00 P.M.) – A Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Russian military convoy entered the town of Ain Issa in northern Al-Raqqa this week, as the SAA and its allies continue to buildup their forces along the front-lines in this governorate.

The town of Ain Issa is considered an important area north of the administrative capital, as it serves as a logistical point between Raqqa city and the Tal Abyad crossing.

Furthermore, the presence of the Turkish-backed militants north of Ain Issa makes the town an important front-line area for the Syrian Arab Army and Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the Al-Raqqa Governorate.

On Wednesday, an RT correspondent in Ain Issa captured footage of some newly deployed Syrian Army tanks inside the town.

 

The Syrian Army’s decision to beef up their forces in Ain Issa comes just days after the Turkish-backed militants targeted their positions outside the town.
