SYRIAN ARMY CAPTURES FIVE OIL FIELDS IN RAQQA

The Syrian army, on Monday, captured five oil fields south of the northern city of Raqqa, following battles with the Daesh group, a military source said.

The Syrian army captured the Dbaisan, Houran, Bir Rmailan, Zamleh and Rajem Jouzeh oil fields, in the southern countryside of Raqqa, the source said.

Meanwhile, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, also reported the advance of the Syrian army, in the southern countryside of Raqqa, close to the northern countryside of Homs province, in central Syria.

The UK-based watchdog group said, the advance of the Syrian army ended the presence of Daesh in the western and south-western countryside of Raqqa.

In Raqqa, the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) said they had made new progress against the Daesh.

The SDF said, its forces have liberated 57 of the old wall of Raqqa, adding that, its fighters also clashed with the Daesh in the Sina'a neighbourhood, near the walls of the old city.

The SDF also claimed to have captured large swathes of Hisham Bin Abdul-Malek neighbourhood in Raqqa, on Tuesday, amid ongoing battles with the terror-designated group.

Still, both the SDF and the Syrian army are fighting separately, with appearance coordination between their backers, the U.S. and Russia
