BREAKING NEWS: "Syrian Army Restores Control Over 150km of Border With Iraq"

From Sputnik:

The Syrian Arab Army has restored control over 150km of border with Iraq, lowering Daesh capabilities in movement of militants and arms, the chief of the Russian General Staff said on Monday.

Moreover, some 20,000 square meters of the Syrian territory was freed from terrorists in the past 2 months, which is 40 percent of the whole liberated territory, chief of the Russian General Staff's Main Operational Directorate Col. Gen. Sergei Rudskoy said.

Since June, the Syrian government forces have liberated from Daesh 55 towns in Aleppo province.

"In the northeast of Aleppo province, in the area of the Euphrates River, the Syrian armed forces continue an offensive against the Daesh terrorists. At least 55 populated areas were liberated in the region since June 1," Rudskoy said.

Earlier it was reported that the Syrian Army regained control over the settlement of al-Dakhilah and the As-Sabhavi gas field, located about 18 miles south of Raqqa, a Syrian military source told Sputnik.

[...]  A large number of members of the [Islamic State] terrorist group were eliminated," the source said.

Retaken territories allow government troops to quickly reach the bank of the Euphrates River and continue the offensive in the direction of the so-called "Daesh capital".
