The Syrian Arab Army’s 67th Brigade of the 18th Tank Division – in close coordination with Liwaa Imam Al-‘Ali (Iraqi paramilitary), Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra (Desert Hawks Brigade), and the National Defense Forces (NDF) – liberated Point 753 in the Hayyan Mountains after a violent battle with the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) on Saturday.

According to a military source at the T-4 Military Airport in east Homs, the Syrian Armed imposed full control over Point 753 and several small hilltops after conducting a successful military operation in the Hayyan Mountains on Saturday, leaving only 1 km of territory between them and the Palmyra (Tadmur) Orchards.

More importantly, the capture of Point 753 in the Hayyan Mountains has positioned the Syrian Armed Forces only a few hundred meters from the Qatari Royal Villa, which has now been transformed into a military training camp for new ISIS recruits.

The Syrian Armed Forces and their allies will have their hands full at the Qatari Royal Villa because it is one of the most heavily fortified sites in the eastern countryside of Homs Governorate.

Unlike the Palmyra Castle, the battle for the Qatari Royal Villa will be far bloodier and much more difficult to penetrate because of its rough terrain and large presence of ISIS militants that are entrenched all around the compounds.
