Minutes ago in the southeastern countryside of the Homs Governorate, the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) 43rd and 63rd brigades of the 4th Mechanized Division liberated the strategic city of Quraytayn after a violent battle with the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS).
The Syrian Arab Army has been storming the city of Quraytyan for the last 48 hours; its capture this morning has forced ISIS to retreat south towards the Iraqi border.
Quraytyan was captured by ISIS during their large-scale offensive inside the southern countryside of the Syrian Desert in August of 2015.
With the liberation of Quraytyan, the Syrian Armed Forces can turn their attention to the Palmyra-Deir Ezzor Highway that is currently under ISIS’ control
