Syrian Army advances on Raqqa border after Maskanah’s capture

4 June 2017 19:04

 

Not long after liberating the strategic city of Maskanah in the southeastern countryside of Aleppo, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) made its first push towards the Al-Raqqa Governorate’s provincial border.

Led by their elite Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army stormed the villages of ‘Aziziyeh Al-Hajj and Khirbat Al-Anz in the Maskanah countryside; this resulted in a short battle with the Islamic State (ISIL) militants in the area.

According to a military source in Aleppo, the Syrian Arab Army liberated ‘Aziziyeh Al-Hajj and Khirbat Al-Anz this afternoon, following a short exchange with the Islamic State forces.


As a result of today’s gains, the Syrian Armed Forces now find themselves near Aleppo-Raqqa axis for the first time in the last four years.
