The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) has had a rather rough time in eastern Syria this week, which has been due in large part to the Russian Air Force’s powerful airstrikes that have left them militarily paralyzed inside the Homs Governorate’s eastern countryside.

On Tuesday morning, ISIS received more bad news at the eastern Homs front when several hundred soldiers from the Syrian Arab Army’s 120th Brigade of the 2nd Division arrived to the small village of Hawareen in order to reinforce their advancing comrades from the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP) and the National Defense Forces (NDF).

According to a military source from the Syrian Social Nationalist Party, over 400 soldiers from the Syrian Arab Army’s 120th Brigade arrived to the village of Hawareen in what is likely to become the second battle for the strategic town of Maheen.

Earlier this week, the Syrian Armed Forces captured the small village of Al-Hadath after seizing the Sadad-Maheen Checkpoint from the forestalled militants of ISIS.

Currently, the Syrian Armed Forces are positioned just north of Hawareen , where they are presently watching the Russian Air Force devastate the ISIS terrorists at Maheen with repeated airstrikes.

The Syrian Armed Forces are likely to begin their massive assault on Hawareen in the coming hours; however, this is primarily contingent on the weather.
