Pro-government forces, led by the Syrian Arab Army Tiger Forces, have captured the al-Thawra oil field in the province of Raqqah, according to a number of pro-government sources.
According to reports, government forces also advanced in the direction of Habbari oil field with a wider goal to clear the area east of the Khanasser-Iithriyah road from vestiges of the ISIS force. According to some pro-government sources, the Habbari field liberated by the army.
However, there are a lack of photos and videos from the area because of a military censorship imposed by the military.
If reports about the recent gains are confirmed, this will indicate that the army and its allies will be able to clear the whole area east of Khanasser soon.
The recent push against ISIS followed a major advance made by government forces yesterday. The Tiger Forces and their allies liberated a number of villages and reached the Ithriyah-Tabqah road.
