BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:00 A.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIL) is having a rough time this weekend as they continue to lose large swathes of territory to the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) across the country.

In particular, the Islamic State has found themselves in serious trouble in the central part of the country, thanks in large part to the Syrian Army’s airborne operation that was conducted last night in the Homs Governorate.

Syrian paratroopers landed 20km behind ISIL’s lines on Friday night, catching the terrorist group off-guard and forcing them to withdraw from the entire Al-Kadeer area near Al-Qawm.

As a result of this operation, the Syrian Arab Army’s units in the Homs Governorate have almost linked up with their forces in the Al-Raqqa Governorate town of Resafa.

Once the Syrian Army reaches the southern countryside of Al-Resafa, the Islamic State will be fully besieged in central Syria, as they will have no route to retreat from both east Hama and Homs.
