The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) has launched another large-scale offensive near the strategic Tiyas Military Airbase and T-4 Pumping Station located in the eastern countryside of the Homs Governorate.

The terrorist group began their assault around 8:30 A.M. (Damascus Time) on Tuesday morning, when their large contingents attacked the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) checkpoints on the road to the villages of Qasr Al-Hur and Al-Dawa, capturing two of the barriers at this area in the vicinity of the T-4 Pumping Station.

Not long after the ISIS militants captured the two checkpoints, the Syrian Arab Air Force (SAA) began their relentless assault on the terrorist group’s positions on this road, killing scores of enemy combatants, while also obstructing ISIS reinforcements from reaching this area.

With the help of the Syrian Air Force, the Syrian Armed Forces were able to recover one of the checkpoints after fierce clashes with terrorist group before nightfall; however, the militants from ISIS still control the checkpoint outside of Qasr Al-Hur.

Meanwhile, directly east of the ancient city of Palmyra (Tadmur), the Syrian Arab Army – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) – attacked the armed combatants of ISIS at the eastern sector of Al-Bayarat, killing 16 enemy combatants inside the town before nightfall on Tuesday.

In addition to their assault on Al-Bayarat, the Syrian Armed Forces targeted ISIS’ positions at the town of Khanayfees, along with the Palmyra Driving School, the Palmyra Castle, and Burj Al-SyriaTel.
