BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:30 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has scored another major advance in the Al-Sukhnah countryside, liberating several areas under the control of the Islamic State (ISIL).

Backed by Russian airstrikes, the Syrian Arab Army’s Tiger Forces and 5th Legion stormed the Wadi Al-Rahahiyah area, where they were confronted by a large Islamic State unit.

Not long after launching this attack, the Syrian Arab Army was able to take full control of the Wadi Al-Rabahiyah area, making their way to Bir ‘Aboud and Wadi Al-Harf.

The Syrian Arab Army would later take control of both Wadi Al-Harf and Bir ‘Aboud after a short battle with the Islamic State terrorists.

I’m again at a loss here why the Tiger Forces are being wasted in this campaign in central Syria when more urgent matters await them in Raqqa and Deir Ezzur. ISIS are not going anywhere because they are completely surrounded and sooner rather then later they will surrender because they will run out of ammunition and food supplies. The most pressing task at the moment is to liberate Deir Ezzur before the US and its Kurdish proxies invade it and cut it off from the Syrian state.
