The Syrian army and National Defense Forces (NDF) have made advances against Daesh (ISIL/ISIS) in several strategically important areas of Raqqa, Iran's Fars news agency reported on Wednesday. 

"Syrian government forces stormed the ISIL defense lines near the small town of Zahiyeh and seized back three strategic heights and several hills in the region," Fars reported.

The army and NDF killed scores of Daesh terrorists in fierce clashes as they advanced towards three other villages around Raqqa, aided from the air by Russian and Syrian fighter jets which bombed terrorist positions near Zakiyeh.

Fars reported that Syrian fighter jets have also bombed a Daesh training camp in the north east of Raqqa province, killing at least 33 terrorists and injuring dozens more. 

Raqqa became a stronghold of Daesh after the terrorist group seized control of the city in January 2014.
