Syrian government forces have further advanced against ISIS on the eastern bank of the Euphrates and captured the villages of Tabiya and Jadid Uqaydat along the road to al-Busariyah.
Earlier today reports appeared that the Syrian Army launched an operation aiming to reach the ISIS-held city. However, this will be a complicated task. Government forces will likely face significant troubles with isolating the city.
Thus, if ISIS resists strongly to government troops, they will not be able to enter al-Busariyah before the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces.
