Alwaght- US military helicopters evacuated a number of ISIS terrorist group commanders out of their stronghold in Syria's Raqqa taking them to an undisclosed destination.
According to Al Manar TV, a member of the People’s Council Ammar Assad has said that three weeks ago US helicopters evacuated a number of ISIS Takfiri terrorist group commanders out of Raqqa and that most of them were Western nationals.
Assad added that the US forced the so-called “Syrian Democratic Forces” to let scores of ISIS terrorists leave Raqqa.
Meanwhile, the Syrian army launched a massive offensive in the Raqqa governorate Monday targeting the last bastions of ISIS in the western countryside of the province.
Led by their elite Tiger Forces, the Syrian forces liberated yesterday several villages in the western countryside of Raqqa paving the way for their rapid advance to the key oil field of Rusafa on Tuesday morning.
Sources say that all of the area west of the Rusafa Oil Field has been liberated; however, the army has yet to enter because of potential hazards like IEDs planted by the retreating terrorists.
The Syrian Arab Army has reached the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces’ lines around Tabaqa, marking the first time in nearly three years that they have had any presence in this area.
Different foreign-backed terrorist groups have been wreaking havoc in Syria since 2011. Over the past few months, Syrian forces have made sweeping gains against Takfiri elements, who have lately increased their acts of violence across the country following a series of defeats on the ground.
Syria blames the US and its regional allies especially Saudi Arabia of being the main supporters of terrorist groups in the country.
