Pro-government forces, led by the Syrian Army Tiger Forces, have captured the strategic crossroad town of Resafa in the province of Raqqah. The town had been controlled by ISIS terrorist group.
The liberation of Resafa is the latest success in a series of advances made by government forces in the province. Controlling Resafa, the Tiger Forces and their allies are able to control the road between the town of Tabqah (controlled by US-backed forces) and the city of Deir Ezzor besieged by ISIS terrorists.
Meanwhile, reports continue appearing about sporadic firefights between US-backed forces and the Syrian army in the area south of Tabqah.
Yesterday, the US-led coalition downed a Syrian Su-22 warplane in the area arguing that the Su-22 had dropped bombs near US-partnered forces.
