Hundreds of Square Kilometers of Land in Raqqa Freed from ISIL by Syrian Army
The sources said that the Syrian Army has captured a number of energy fields in Southwestern Raqqa, deploying the provincial borders with Homs.
The sources further added that the army soldiers have won back hundreds of square kilometers of lands in the province, and deployed at Mount al-Bushra that was once along the path normally taken by Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the dead ISIL chief.
Deploying at Mount al-Bushra that links Raqqa to Deir Ezzur, the army forces are only 50km away from the Northwestern borders with Deir Ezzur.
Relevant reports said on Tuesday that the army troops continued their advances against ISIL in Southern Raqqa and imposed full control over three more oilfields.
The army men that took back al-Dil’eh oilfield on Tuesday managed to drive ISIL out of the oilfields of Debsan, al-Rameilan and Rajm al-Jowz.
ISIL suffered heavy casualties and its military hardware sustained major damage in the attack.
