Syrian Army Kicks off Fresh Operation to Regain Control over Albu Kamal
The source said that the Syrian fighter jets and choppers have started targeting ISIL’s defense lines near Albu Kamal, inflicting major losses on the terrorists.
The source further said that a large number of ISIL terrorists, including several field commanders that led the recapture of Albu Kamal, were killed in the air raids.
The source went on to say that the army’s elite forces have launched their operation from the town of al-Mayadeen towards Northwest of Albu Kamal.
The ISIL regained control over Albu Kamal on Saturday, just few days after the pro-government forces took back control of the strategic town at the border with Iraq on Thursday.
As Albu Kamal once again is under the ISIL’s control, the army and its allies will attempt to push towards the city from the al-Mayadeen flank in order to surround the terrorists from three different directions.
