The Syrian Arab Army Tiger Forces and pro-government tribal forces have liberated two more villages from ISIS terrorists in the southern part of the province of Raqqah.
According to pro-government sources, government fighters have liberated and fully secured Abu Hammad and Salim Hammad vilalges near the Euphrates River.
The advance was made without heavy clashes with ISIS units. However, government troops had been pushed to dismante a high number of IEDs before the area became fully secured. This decreased the speed of the advance.
Heavy clashes will likely erupt between government forces and ISIS in the town of Maadan, one of the key ISIS strong points in the southern Raqqah.
