Minutes ago in the Homs Governorate’s southeastern countryside, the Syrian Arab Army’s 81st and 120th brigades of the 2nd Division – in close coordination with the Syrian Social National Party (SSNP), Dara’ Qalamoun (Qalamoun Shield), and Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra (Desert Hawks Brigade) – liberated several sites from the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) near the strategic city of Quraytayn.
The Syrian Armed Forces began their assault by imposing full control over the Thaniyah Wall (northern wall) and Thaniyah Rashid near Jabal Mahsaa after a short battle with ISIS this morning.
Following the capture of these aforementioned sites, the Syrian Armed Forces liberated the small mountaintop of Jabal Al-Rawassi Al-Tawaal in the Homs Desert, killing several ISIS terrorists in the process.
The Syrian Armed Forces would follow this up by capturing Jabal Jabeel Al-Sharif (mountaintop), Tal Kurdi (hilltop), and Al-Rawabi Al-Taheen (point) from the exhausted ISIS terrorists.
With the recent advance today, the Syrian Armed Forces have now seized much of the territory around the eastern slopes of the Qalamoun Mountains.
This mountainous territory has been a thorn in the government’s side for quite some time due to ISIS’ large presence around this area of southeastern Homs.
