BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:45 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) scored a large-scale advance inside the southeastern countryside of the Deir Ezzor, Sunday, pushing their way along the strategic Mayadeen-Albukamal Road.

Led by the Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army attacked the Islamic State’s (ISIS) positions southeast of Al-Mayadeen, liberating
several villages and hilltops after a fierce battle.

According to a military report, the Syrian Army liberated the villages of Bir Al-Dakhoul, Al-Dakhoul, Bir Khadr Mayy, Bir Haba, Abu Al-Habaya, and Bir Daham, along with the hilltops of Tal Melhem and Tal Al-Ghufran.

As a result of this advance, the Syrian Arab Army managed to liberate at least 30 km of territory en route to the strategic border-city of Albukamal.

ISIS recaptured Albukamal from the Syrian Arab Army after conducting a swift counter-offensive this past weekend.

Let’s hope the tigers will sort al-Bukamal out.

Seems like SAA is disregarding its flanks again. Either it works out or, as in too often, it gets SAA a stinging defeat.

Sadly Tigers are the only competent unit of SAA…
