The Syrian Arab Army troops have continued their offensive against ISIS terrorists on the Al-Resafa-Ithria highway which connects Raqqa and Hama governorates. Reports say that most of the highway territory, the village of Qasr al-Metaj and the Arqub Zro Mountain have been cleared from terrorists. ISIS sources, in their turn, claim that they’ve killed 22 SAA soldiers east of Salamiah in Hama province. Also, the Syrian government forces say they’ve captured 140 kilometers of the Aleppo–Raqqa highway thereby ousting the terrorists from Aleppo governorate.
