One day after losing the Tanf border-crossing in southeast Homs to the “new” Free Syrian Army (FSA), the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) reportedly recaptured this strategic site that links Syria with the western Iraqi province of Al-‘Anbar.

According to ISIS social media activists, the aforementioned imposed full control of the Tanf border-crossing after a short battle with the Free Syrian Army on Saturday afternoon in the deserts of southeastern Homs.

The extremist rebels were able to capture this border-crossing from ISIS during an abrupt assault from the Jordanian border yesterday.

According to the so-called “Syrian Observatory for Human Rights”, the rebel assault was backed by the Jordanian Air Force; however, this has not been confirmed by the Jordanian Armed Forces’ Central Command.

The Tanf border-crossing is surrounded by the vast Homs Desert and a small mountain chain that is located in its northern countryside.

ISIS captured the Tanf border-crossing during their large-scale offensive in August when they stormed southeastern Homs; this attack resulted in the terrorist group also capturing the cities of Maheen and Quraytayn.
