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