Thursday the 26th of January has proven to be a constructive day for the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in eastern Homs. Operations for the day have seen an expansion of the buffer zone around the T-4 military airport to both the north and the south with the capturing of several key sites along the way.

To the north of the T-4 military airport, the SAA expelled Daesh (ISIS) fighters from two key hilltops within the Jabal Tiyas mountain chain helping to further secure not only the latter mentioned military installation, but also the Homs-to-Palmyra highway. This highway is a critical communication line for ongoing pro-government operations in eastern Homs.

To the southeast of the T-4 airbase, the SAA has been pushing further south from the area of B’ir Al-Fawa’rah which was restored to government control on Wednesday.

All advances by the SAA have been made under the cover of heavy artillery fire, including the use of rocket batteries, and close air support provided by Russian gunships which roam the battlefield. The concentration of such firepower by the pro-government forces demonstrates that the Palmyra front remains highly active and, more specifically, that the SAA remains committed to its offensive to liberate the ancient city which was re-seized by ISIS in December of 2016.

ISIS is so obviously supported by someone with extremely good intelligence so they can execute these deep penetrating actions into the territories of the opposing sides. It takes to have satellites and other surveillance equipment to be able to plan, prepare and execute these massive quick gains (Palmyra, Khanaser area) that then take months for SAA to neutralise. This may also explain why Turkey is stuck at Al Bab front even with Russian’s support there, it looks like ISIS was not only created by the Americans but are still supported by them
