DAMASCUS, SYRIA (3:50 P.M.) – The Syrian Armed Forces continue to effectively overrun the Islamic State in different battlegrounds across the worn-torn country.
Led by the SAA’ elite Tiger Forces, Army units have been making significant advances, liberating more villages and towns from the self-proclaimed Islamic State in the southern countryside of Raqqa.
Yesterday, the Tiger Forces – backed by heavy Russian airstrikes – were capable of recapturing the town of Taybah located to the north of Sukhnah in east Homs.
Meanwhile, the government forces aided by allies re-took Humaymah; a town located in the far eastern countryside near the borders with Deir Ezzor.
Earlier, scores of ISIS militants were entirely besieged in a pocket to the eastern countryside of Hama after government troops managed to successfully encircle the area.
14-minutes video footage has been recently released showing part of the recent battles fought by the Syrian Army against ISIS in the central Syria.
