Syrian army battles ISIS in al-Mayadin town

(AhlulBayt News Agency) - The Syrian army and its allies have captured areas of ISIS-held al-Mayadin in eastern Syria, a Hezbollah-run military news outlet reported on Thursday, in an advance into the terrorist group's main urban base of operations in Syria.

Backed by Russia and Iran, the Syrian army encircled the militants in al-Mayadin on Sunday.

In June, two U.S. intelligence officials told Reuters that they believed Isis had moved most of its diminished command structure and propaganda team to al-Mayadin, southeast of its former capital of Raqqa.
