Yesterday, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Mouqawama Souri (Syrian Resistance) forces regained control of Taloul Al-Hawa after fierce clashes with Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) militants in this east Homs village. According to a military source, 78 ISIS fighters were killed during the battle, including 13 men who possessed foreign documents.

Fighting is still ongoing in the vicinity of the village as the SAA and ISIS are engaged in violent clashes at Deir Al-‘Adass, Al-Danaaji, Deir Makr, and Al-Habaariyyeh. Up until recently, ISIS and the SAA were deadlocked in a stalemate in east Homs, with neither side making any significant gains.

It appears the SAA is now launching a small offensive near Al-Sha’ar to capture ISIS-controlled areas; this news arrives on the same day that firefights intensify between the SAA and ISIS in the Deir Ezzor Governate.

[…] Aprovechando la atencion constante y la gran cantidad de recursos que el EI esta dedicando, y consumiendo, en el frente Kobane, el Ejercito tambien ha empezado a golpear al EI en su reducto al Este de Homs. Solo ayer fueron neutralizados 75 miembros del grupo terrorista en violentos combates.
