BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:30 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) had a successful weekend in the eastern countryside of the Homs Governorate, liberating several areas from the so-called Islamic State (ISIL) forces near the Deir Ezzor provincial border.

Led by the 5th Corps and 18th Tank Division, the Syrian Arab Army attacked the Islamic State’s main defenses in the strategic Humaymah area, pushing the terrorist forces east towards the T-2 Pumping Station.

According to a military source in Palmyra, the Syrian Arab Army managed to liberate all of the Humaymah area after overrunning ISIL’s front-lines, forcing them to retreat east to reconstruct their defenses along the Palmyra-Albukamal Highway.

With the liberation of the Humaymah area, the Syrian Arab Army is now within striking distance of the T-2 Pumping Station, which is the last site under the Islamic State’s control before the Deir Ezzor Governorate’s western border.
