On Tuesday, Syrian Arab Army Tiger Forces and pro-government tribal forces fighters liberated 3 more villages from ISIS terrorists in the southern Raqqah countryside. Government forces took control of Jabir, Numaysah and Khamisiyah near the important ISIS-held town of Maadan.
The government advance on Maadan took place amid the ongoing fighting in the area of Sukhna in the province of Homs. ISIS have been repotedly redeploying reinforcements in order to retake the town of Sukhna from government forces from the provinces of Homs and Raqqah. If confirmed, the Tiger Forces and their allies could use this as an opportunity to put additional pressure on ISIS positions in the southern Raqqah countryside.
