BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:20 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) launched a big counter-offensive against the so-called Islamic State (ISIS), today, after the latter regained all of the territory they lost to the government forces in east Homs.
Led by their Republican Guard forces, the Syrian Arab Army managed to retake all of the territory the Islamic State captured on Sunday evening.
According to a military report from Damascus, the Syrian Arab Army was able to retake all of the territory they lost after the Islamic State failed to secure their gains this morning.
However, despite the fact they recaptured these areas in the Badiya Al-Sham region of east Homs, the Syrian Army still suffered heavy losses over the last 24 hours.
The Syrian Army reported over 25 casualties after the Islamic State launched their big counterattack near the western border of the Deir Ezzor Governorate.
