Backed by Russian airstrikes, the Syrian Arab Army stormed the southern countryside of the T-4 Military Airport, liberating large chunks of territory en route to their advance to the village of Al-Baridah.
According to a military source in Homs, the Syrian Arab Army managed to kill as many as 25 Islamic State terrorists, while also destroying 1 armored and 7 technical vehicles south of the T-4 Airport.
In addition to their large-scale advance north of Al-Barida, the Syrian Arab Army also cleared several sites east of the T-4 Pumping Station and Teefor village in east Homs on Thursday.
