Footage filmed on Tuesday shows Syrian army troops firing rockets and heavy machine guns in the Raqqa province, during a battle with the so-called Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL). Earlier in the day the Syrian army reportedly fought intense battles against the IS militants, around 60 kilometres to the south-west of the IS' supposed capital.
