Tens of terrorists were killed and dozens more were injured during the Syrian army's operations in provinces across Syria.

Aleppo

The Syrian government troops accompanied by Russian forces entered the city of Ein Al-Arab.

The Syrian Army went into the strategic town, where Kurdish militias were stationed.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights had earlier announced that Russian forces have crossed the Euphrates river in Northern Syria and reached areas outside Kobani, pushing Eastward with Kurdish militias.

The arrival in Kobani comes after a deal cut between Kurdish militias, who control the city, and Damascus to deploy the Syrian Army to border areas to help fend off the Turkish offensive into Northern part of the war-torn country.

The Syrian Army has also deployed to several areas North-West of Hasaka province. Government troops have entered several towns in Tel Tamr District of Al-Hasaka, including Al-Aharis and Manajeer, to prevent the Turkish Army and their militant allies from further expanding in Hasaka province as they try to recapture the strategic city of Ras Al-Ain.

The Syrian government troops have reportedly entered several towns and villages in the middle of the Kurdish-controlled part of the country.

The Russian Defense Ministry announced Tuesday Syrian government forces took control of an area of more than 1,000 square kilometers around the Northeastern Syrian city of Manbij.

Raqqa

US-led troops have left the Syrian towns of Raqqa, Tabqa, as well as the Lafarge cement factory as part of Washington's decision to withdraw troops from Northeast Syria, according to a statement by the Pentagon, while Washington carried out an air raid to destroy an ammunition cache and military equipment that were left behind.

According to Fars News Agency, Coalition Spokesman Colonel Myles B. Caggins said on Twitter "Coalition forces continue a deliberate withdrawal from Northeast Syria", adding that "On October 16, we vacated the Lafarge Cement Factory, Raqqa, and Tabqa".

Hours earlier, the Syrian government forces had entered Raqqa under cover from the air. It is reported that army troops were enthusiastically welcomed by the local population.

Also, a major US base in Northern Syria was destroyed by an airstrike after the troops pulled out, likely to prevent more embarrassing videos of the abandoned facility once it is reclaimed by Syrian government troops.

The US officials confirmed the strike on Wednesday evening, saying it was previously planned and intended “to prevent the coalition operation center from being utilized by outside forces".

Caggins stated that the strike involved two F-15e fighter jets from the US-led coalition, which fired on the Lafarge Cement Factory, after all coalition forces had left the facility.
