DAMASCUS, SYRIA (3:30 A.M.) – The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) launched another offensive in the eastern countryside of the Homs Governorate, targeting the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) controlled villages of Huwaysis and Jubb Al-Jarrah.

ISIS began their offensive by sending a large wave of combatants towards the Syrian Army’s defenses in order to overwhelm them; however, this would ultimately fail after a short battle.

According to an Al-Masdar field correspondent in Damascus City, the Syrian Armed Forces foiled the terrorist offensive on Friday, killing and wounding scores of Islamic State combatants in the process.

Meanwhile, east of Palmyra, Russian choppers launched several attacks against the Islamic State terrorists at the villages of Sukhnah, Taybah, and ‘Arak.
