DAMASCUS, SYRIA (11:00 A.M.) – With the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) slowly gaining ground around a network of hills surrounding the imperative T3 Airbase and T3 Pumping Station in eastern Homs, ISIS is putting up bitter resistance with all types of weaponry in an attempt to avoid government forces from reaching the neighboring Deir Ezzor governorate.

Amaq Agency published 21 images depicting a desert battle on the outskirts of the T3 Airbase where jihadist militants observed SAA troops advancing on the oil-rich region. Russian warplanes also hovered above the battlefield and conducted numerous sorties while one ISIS car bomb was put to lethal effect:

Despite a large Islamic State garrison defending the T3 Airbase, government forces are expected to resume their offensive on the airfield in the coming days.

The T3 Airbase and its oil fields have been under ISIS control for over two years. At the moment nevertheless, government forces are less than two kilometers from the airport.

These are not only ISIS but Kurds too. They are allies, though they pretend to be adversaries. In one of the photos there is also a US tank pounding Syrian government positions.

La fuerza aérea tiene que ser mas efectivo, no hay presencia de civiles por tanto tiene que ser mas agresivo…
