BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:10 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) resumed their offensive in the southeastern countryside of the Homs Governorate, Saturday, targeting the Islamic State’s (ISIL) positions near the provincial border of Deir Ezzor.

Backed by Hezbollah and Liwaa Fatemiyoun, the Syrian Arab Army’s 5th Corps launched a powerful assault in the Humaymah area of Homs this morning, inflicting heavy damage on the Islamic State’s positions.

Within hours of launching this assault, the Syrian Arab Army and their allies managed to capture most of the hilltops in the area, while also killing and wounding several Islamic State terrorists along the road to the Deir Ezzor Governorate.

This latest advance by the Syrian Arab Army and their allies comes just days after they seized more territory along the Iraqi border with the Homs Governorate.
