Today, Syrian Arab Army (SAA) forces advanced northeast of the T-4 Airbase and captured the western hill overlooking the Jihar gas field in Eastern Homs.
By taking control of the hill, the Syrian Armed Forces have achieved fire control over the entire Jihar gas wheels and the gas station as well.
These fresh gains prepare the ground for the SAA to push towards the Hayyan and Jihar companies from two axis, west from the Tiyas hills and south from the Jihar crossroads area.
The picture below shows an SAA soldier standing at the last point they reached south of the Hayyan company area.
This picture shows the remains of an ISIS suicide driver who was trying to reach SAA points north of the Jihar crossroads with car bomb; the vehicle was sucessfully destroyed with an ATGM.

Meanwhile, Syrian airstrikes targeted ISIS positions inside the city of Palmyra (Tadmur) in Al-Areed Street resulting in the killing of 9 ISIS fighters, plus destroying a bulldozer and a fuel truck in the area.
