Soldiers from the 3rd Armored Division cross an open field after the Islamist rebels fled building ahead.

Last week, the Syrian Arab Army’s 3rd Armored and 11th Tank Divisions pulled out of the imperative towns of Sinaysil and Jawalek after orders were passed down from the Syrian Armed Forces’ Central Command regarding a potential reconciliation agreement with Islamist rebels of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and Harakat Ahrar Al-Sham.

Unfortunately, this potential ceasefire agreement went sour over the weekend, as the Islamist rebels refused the terms provided by the Syrian Arab Army’s Central Command; thus, leading to the renewed clashes outside of Jawalek and Sinaysil on Monday afternoon.

On Wednesday morning, the Syrian Arab Army’s 3rd and 11th Divisions – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) of Homs City and the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSN) fighters from Wadi Al-Nasara (“Valley of the Christians”) – broke-through the Islamist rebel defenses at both Jawalek and Sinaysil, securing the eastern sectors of these towns in the Homs Governorate’s northern countryside.

In addition to their reentrance into Jawalek and Sinaysil, the Syrian Armed Forces also resumed their assault on the integral town of Tayr Ma’lat, where they were able to push further north towards the central district; this ground assault was followed by a number of airstrikes from the Russian Air Force.

The Syrian Armed Forces did not stop there, however; instead, they advanced their positions along the road leading from Al-Halmouz to Al-Jasmiyyi after intense clashes with the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra.”

Currently, the Syrian Armed Forces have engaged the Islamist rebels at several sites in northern Homs; despite this, they still have a long way to go before they can achieve their objective, which includes the reopening of the Hama-Homs Highway.
