BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:00 A.M.) – The last 48 hours in the Homs Governorate have been a tremendous success for the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their allies, as their forces liberate new areas from the Islamic State (ISIL) terror organization.

Backed by Russian airstrikes, the Syrian Arab Army’s 18th Tank Division launched a powerful attack northwest of the T-4 Military Airport, Saturday, targeting the Islamic State’s last positions in the area.

According to a military source in Homs, the Syrian Arab Army managed to capture several areas on Sunday, including 5 points east of Mannoukh.

The source added that the Syrian Army carried out an ambush against a group of Islamic State reinforcements that were traveling through the Al-Shandakhiyah area; this attack resulted in the death of at least 9 terrorists.
