DAMASCUS, May 27 (NNN-PRENSA LATINA)--In less than 48 hours, the Syrian Army and allied forces destroyed a convoy of the Islamic State (DAESH) and released more than 2,000 square kilometres in the east, confirmed military sources today.
The information disclosed, along with a video, shows the attack against a caravan of at least 35 vehicles carrying DAESH troops to try to strengthen their positions in areas near Raqqa, 540 kilometers Northeast of Damascus.
The convoy travelled along the Busayri-Zaza road to strengthen the provincial capital of the Al-Raqqa governorate, about to be attacked by the Syrian Democratic Forces, an opposition coalition to the Bashar Al Assad government.
In turn, in a coordinated manner, the Syrian Armed Forces and its allied militias surpassed the Daesh's defensive lines south and east of the historic locality of Palmira and consolidate positions around the strategic oil and gas fields in the province of Homs.
Throughout this region, on the eastern border with Iraq, are deployed the Kurdish self-defense forces, from the Syrian armed opposition, Turkish troops and US special units, but the advances against terrorists in the field are essentially the Syrian Army work, noted the sources.--NNN-PRENSA LATINA
