AMMAN - The Syrian army has captured a small air force base east of the city of Aleppo on Islamic State (IS). The army was supported by Russia, who carried out heavy bombing.
The airport, which had been in possession since 2014, was still one of their few bulwarks in this region. In recent times, the terrorist organization has suffered a lot of land loss.
The Raqqa IS is also coming to an end. The city in northern Syria is almost entirely surrounded by Kurdish militia of the Syrian Democratic Armed Forces, supported by the US.
