BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:30 A.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIL) had another rough day in the eastern countryside of the Homs Governorate following a large-scale attack by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) along the Sukhnah-Deir Ezzor Highway.

Led by the Tiger Forces and 5th Legion, the Syrian Arab Army scored a major advance along the Sukhnah-Deir Ezzor Highway, resulting in the liberation of several points that are located east of Tal SyriaTel.

According to a military source in the Homs Governorate, the Syrian Arab Army managed to kill over 20 Islamic State terrorists during the assault, while also destroying two tanks and two technical vehicles that were fitted with anti-aircraft machine guns.

As a result of Tuesday’s advance, the Syrian Arab Army now finds themselves less than 65km away from the provincial capital of the Deir Ezzor Governorate.

It sounds good, 65km.

Yep! But last month it was 80km from this side of the front. Probably they’re not telling us everything. Probably there are counter offensives by ISIS which are not being reported making this front look more like an elastic; sometimes the distance extends, others it contracts.

Hati, hati, cover the flanks and the airspace very well and do not get carried away with excitement.

I’m still scratching my head here. From Raqqa’s Western banks of the Euphrates river the Tiger Forces are now just around 35km from Deir Ezzur city. That’s half the distance. Why has their advance again been put on hold from this side of the front?
