BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:45 P.M.) – At approximately 9:00 A.M. (Damascus Time) this morning, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) kicked off their major assault to besiege the Islamic State (ISIL) forces inside central Syria.
Led by their Tiger Forces, the Syrian Arab Army and their allies stormed the mountains that are located just north of the strategic Taybah area, resulting in a series of intense firefights with the Islamic State terrorists in this region.
According to a military source, the Syrian Arab Army is attempting to capture Minshar Mountain, which is located directly west of the Taybah area.
Once Minshar Mountain is captured, the Syrian Arab Army will have fire control over the western part of Taybah, as it overlooks this entire area.
