The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) has struck back against the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP), the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Sadad, and the Assyrian “Gozarto Protection Forces” (Sootooro) inside the strategic town of Maheen after a series of intense for firefights in the Homs Governorate’s eastern countryside.

According to a field source in the city of Sadad, ISIS has recaptured the Maheen Orchards, the village of Hawareen and the strategic hilltop at Tal Daher; this paved the way for them to advance to the village of Al-Hadath.

The military source added that the firefights are still ongoing between the Syrian Armed Forces and ISIS at Al-Hadath – he stated that reports of ISIS taking control of this village are all false.
