‌The Syrian Army backed by its allied national defense forces have managed to flush ISIS militants out of a number of strategic hills outside the village of Tell al-Tut from where the terrorists controlled all other villages near the desert of al-Badiyah.

The Syrian armed forces are now poised to continue their advance to liberate more populated areas in the Syrian desert, the main stretches of which a strategic oil pipeline runs through.

Backed by the Russian Aerospace Forces, the Syrian Army has made significant advances towards the Daesh-held city of Raqqa, killing scores of terrorists.

Meanwhile, in northern Syria, government forces have cut off all supply routes into the eastern, rebel-held part of Aleppo, which has been under siege since July 11.

Forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad recently tightened their control of the only route into the strategic city, Sputnik reported.
