On Monday morning in the Homs Governorate’s eastern countryside, the Syrian Arab Army’s 67th Brigade of the 18th Tank Division – backed by the National Defense Forces (NDF) and Kataebat Al-Ba’ath (Al-Ba’ath Battalions) – imposed full control over 8 hilltops that overlook the strategic village of Jazal after a violent battle with the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS).

Following this successful attack, the Syrian Armed Forces would recapture almost 7 km worth of oil rich territory that was under the control of ISIS in the Jazal Mountains of the Homs Governorate.

According to a battlefield journalist that was embedded with the Syrian Arab Army’s 67th Brigade in the Jazal Mountains, the Syrian Armed Forces were able to capture a number of points in Jabal Hamra after advancing east.

In addition to their advance in the Jazal Mountains, the Syrian Armed Forces continued their assault on ISIS’ positions near the desert-city of Palmyra (Tadmur).

This aforementioned attack focused on the small village of Al-Dawa, which has exchanged hands between the government forces and the terrorist group at least 4 times in the last 3 months.

Currently, the Syrian Armed Forces are less than 3 km away from Jabal Qassoun at Palmyra’s western flank; if they are able to seize Al-Dawa, they will be within striking distance of this small mountaintop.
