BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:15 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army launched a large-scale offensive in the eastern countryside of Homs last night, targeting the area around the T-4 Military Airport and eastern outskirts of Quraytayn.

Led by the 800th Battalion of the Republican Guard and Shaheen Group of the Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army liberated a large area around T-4 Military Airport, and cleared much of the territory around Tiyas village.

According to a military source in eastern Homs, the Syrian Arab Army recently liberated at least 3km of territory east of Tiyas and another 3km north of the aforementioned village, killing and wounding several Islamic State terrorists in the process.

The Syrian Armed Forces were able to make this advance on Saturday with help of the Syrian and Russian air forces, who weakened the Islamic State’s defenses with a flurry of airstrikes.

ISIS suffered heavy losses as a result of this offensive on Saturday, losing more than  25 combatants and 4 armored vehicles, including 1 T-55 Tank near Tiyas village.

The Syrian Army is expected to launch another attack in the coming hours, as they look to reach the Jazal Gas Fields by the start of the new week.

El gobierno Turco quiere invitar a negociar a ISIS, también tuvo reunión secreto en Tabqa con ISIS para proporcionar armas contra los combatientes de PYD para que no avancen hacia Al-Raqa… Ojalá avance de una ves por todas el ejercito Sirio hasta alcanzar la victoria en esta zona.
