The Syrian Arab Army’s Special Forces brigade “Qawat Suqour Al-Sahra” (Desert Hawks) – in cooperation with the National Defense Forces (NDF) – has captured the villages of Jahaar and Jazal after launching an offensive in east Homs last Thursday.

According to a military source in Homs, the Desert Hawks launched a powerful assault on the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) militants entrenched at Jazal, killing over 20 enemy combatants before declaring the village under the Syrian State Government’s control.

Jazal’s capture comes two days after the Desert Hawks took full control over the oil wells outside the village – the ISIS fighters have now retreated further north, where they will likely regroup to launch a counter-attack.

Following the capture of Jazal, the Desert Hawks and NDF took control of the village of Jahaar, destroying 3 ISIS vehicles mounted with doshkas, while also seizing a large cache of weapons inside a garage.

The commander of the Tiger Forces (Qawat Al-Nimr), Colonel Suheil Al-Hassan, has returned to the eastern Homs front after his quick transfer to the city of Aleppo.

Colonel Hassan’s Tiger Forces did not waste any time, they carried out an intense assault on ISIS’ positions at Well 105 in Jabal Al-Sha’ar (Poet Mountains), killing a confirmed 18 enemy combatants before taking control of the southern perimeter.
