BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:10 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continued their march towards Deir Ezzor, today, targeting the Islamic State’s (ISIL) last positions in central Syria.

Backed by the 3rd and 5th legions, the Syrian Arab Army’s Tiger Forces stormed the strategic mountain of Jabal Al-Dahk in the northern countryside of Al-Sukhnah this morning.

Within hours of launching the attack, the Syrian Arab Army had seized two tanks and one BMP, while also dismantling two IEDs in the Jabal Al-Dahk area.

The Syrian Army would take full control of the western half of Jabal Al-Dahk by the early afternoon hours, forcing the Islamic State to retreat to the eastern part of the mountain.

As a result of today’s advance, the Syrian Arab Army is now on the verge of closing the last gap separating their forces in the eastern countryside of the Homs Governorate.
