Kurdish Forces Win Back Syrian Army’s Strategic Base from ISIL in Reqqa
The Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) in Syria took back the army’s strategic headquarters in Northern Syria from the Takfiri terrorists on Monday.
The Kurdish forces seized back the army’s Division 93 Base in Reqqa province from the ISIL militants today.
Another army base located in the Southern parts of Tal Abyad was also seized back few days ago from the ISIL terrorists.
On Thursday, the Syrian army took back control of 22 important towns and villages in Northern Syria from the Takfiri terrorists.
The Kurdish forces seized back 22 strategic towns and villages from the ISIL along Tal Tamr-Aleppo Highway.
The towns of Sokhreh, Khazuka, Tal Tavil and Bir Attiya were among the towns seized back by the YPG fighters in the Northern parts of the country.
The border towns are major avenues for commerce for the extremist group — through which it smuggles in foreign fighters and sells black-market oil. The city is also a key link between Turkey and the Northern Syrian city of Reqqa, the de-facto capital of the ISIL group’s self-declared caliphate.
The YPG has made a determined push into Reqqa province from neighboring Hasaka where it has driven ISIL from wide areas of territory since early May.
