Tiger Forces scythe through ISIS lines in Raqqa en-route to Sukhnah – Map update

14 July 2017 23:19


The Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) elite Tiger Forces, backed up by various paramilitary allies, continue to slice through ISIS lines south of Resafa, capturing the town of Khirbet al-Halul and the Kader oil field today.

These latest advances have put the Tiger Forces approximately 5 kilometers away from the town of al-Fahda and its oil field, 11 kilometers away from entering Homs Governonate via Raqqa Governonate, 20 kilometers away from the town of al-Kom and its local lake area and 60 kilometers away from the strategic town of al-Sukhnah.

According to military sources, the Tiger Forces are working on securing the area southeast of Resafa towards the town of al-Zamleh and the highly-strategic Ramilan B’ir area. By accomplishing this specific advance, the SAA would secure the eastern flank of its push towards al-Sukhnah from ISIS counter-attacks.
