He claimed that the new base was established to train fighters round the clock to fight ISIL.
Al-Talla'a added that the base which was established with the back up of the US-led coalition would be used for the launch of small and mid-size operations in Syria's Badiyeh (desert).
Another source in Jeish al-Maqawir reported that a large volume of arms and ammunition and a large number of militants affiliated to terrorist groups and the coalition were deployed at the base.

ISIS pulls back to downtown Raqqa as Kurdish forces liberate second neighborhood
DAMASCUS, SYRIA (7:20 P.M.) – On Friday evening, the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) imposed full control over the Sabahiya district in west Raqqa after storming it hours earlier. In addition, Kurdish units captured the adjacent village of Al Jazrah and its water treatment station, located on the northern bank of the Euphrates River. Effectively, the SDF is now poised to storm Raqqa city from its western and eastern flanks after establishing a urban foothold on both sides.
However, the Euphrates Wrath offensive is led by elite YPG assault troops whom are Kurdish while the city of Raqqa itself is predominately Arab, causing many locals to take up arms with ISIS.

Meeting on the Euphrates - Colonel Cassad
On June 8, the advanced parts of the SAA came in contact with the SDF units operating west of Tabka. The long-awaited meeting at the Euphrates took place.
Of course, there were various small collisions and shooting, but in general, the process of establishing contact was without much aggravation, although a healthy competition in the occupation of the territory left by the Caliphate was present.
A new line of delineation to the west of Tablka was one of the tributaries of the Euphrates (it is not yet clear whether this is an actual or agreed line of contact). The SAA, in turn, continues to shift the vector of the offensive to the southeast, demonstrating a tendency to bypass the American bridgehead at Tabka, advancing deeper into the province of Rakka. CAA obviously enjoys the fact that the front of the militants has actually collapsed, and the available forces are clearly greater than those of the Kurds with the Americans, who can not simultaneously storm Rakku and build a barrier for the Syrians further to the south. All this makes it possible to expect that most of the territory, which is still on the map for the Caliphate, will be repainted in the next few weeks in red. Thus, the defeat of the Caliphate to the east of Aleppo is actually completed. Now on the agenda, the liberation of the western part of the province of Rakka.
The U.S-Backed Syrian Democratic Forces, with the Y.P.G-J core, recaptured Al-Jazrah Town, located West of Al-Raqqah, from the so-called Islamic State, and take down the Isis black flag, from a top of a building, after liberating it...
