Syrian Army advances 7 km east into the ISIS heartland

30 March 2016 18:33



On Wednesday afternoon in the eastern countryside of the Hama Governorate, the Syrian Arab Army’s 66th Brigade of the 11th Tank Division – backed by the National Defense Forces (NDF) – imposed full control over the strategic hilltop of Tal Tabarah Al-Deibah after a long battle with the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS).

The Syrian Arab Army’s 66th Brigade and their allies were able to liberate Tal Tabarah Al-Deibah after advancing from the recently captured hilltop of Tal Hikmat in the ‘Aqayrbat countryside. With the liberation of Tal Tabarah Al-Deibah on Wednesday, the Syrian Armed Forces have effectively pushed 7 km east into the ISIS heartland, which includes most of the territory between the Al-Salamiyah District of Hama and the Al-Raqqa Governorate.

The village of ‘Aqayrbat is the location of ISIS’ headquarters in the east Hama countryside; if captured, they will likely retreat to the Al-Raqqa Governorate’s western border.
