According to the agency’s source, the advanced forces of the Syrian government forces have established control over the city of Raqqa and have already begun to deploy observation posts. It is noted that the government army for the first time since 2014 entered the city, which was first captured by terrorists from the Islamic State banned in Russia, and in 2017 came under the control of Kurdish troops from the SDS (Syrian Democratic Forces), which after months of fighting recaptured the city from the terrorists. Rakka is an important strategic point and crossroads of important transport routes, and from it, Syrian troops can be deployed to various parts of the country, including oil-rich, which are currently controlled by the Kurds.
