BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:50 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) elite Tiger Forces continue their massive broad-front sweep across the desert flat-lands of southeastern Raqqa Governorate, today liberating two more key sites along the way to the strategic city of Deir Ezzor.

After liberating the village of Rasm Sulieman yesterday afternoon, the Tiger Forces have since moved on to secure the village of al-Kharrar and the nearby hilltop of Tall al-Kharrar.

Of particular importance in all of this is the hilltop of Tall al-Kharrar because it overlooks the villages of Zawr Shammar and Ghanim Ali.

The entire push in this direction is part of an eastwards swing from the desert expanses towards the lush Euphrates farming belt which straggles the length of the great river.

Furthermore, footage related to today’s advance has been filmed by an individual soldier within the Tiger Forces showing his unit gearing up at a stop point in the desert and then recommencing its advance.
