To prepare for new military campaign in Al-Raqqah desert | Russian military police officers arrive at Al-Tabqa military airport

Reliable sources have informed the Syrian Observatory that a military delegation comprising officers of the Russian military police and others from the pro-Russian the “Fifth Corps” militia, visited the military airport of Al-Tabqa on Monday and conducted a reconnaissance tour on the posts of National Defense and the Fifth Corps in the countryside of al-Raqqa.

This comes as regime forces and the Fifth Corps brough in reinforcement in order to launch a new military campaign in the Syrian desert, specifically in the deserts of Safian and Al-Rusafa in al-Raqqa countryside, against the Islamic State deployed in the region, coinciding with a similar campaign by the same forces in al-Mayadeen desert since the beginning of this month, backed by Russian air support.
