Syrian government troops in battles against the terrorist group “Islamic state” in the area of At-Tanta reached the border with Iraq. The success will become a “strategic turn” in the fight against terrorists, said the command of the army of the SAR.
The statement of the Syrian army command says that government forces with the support of allies managed to establish control over a large number of strategic positions and points in the North-East of Al-Tanfa.
According to the military, reaching the border with Iraq is a “strategic turning point in the war.”
Earlier this week, the US-led international coalition carried out the third blow in the last month, at loyal to Damascus troops in the district of At-Tanf.
