BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:20 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has retaken the initiative near the strategic city of Quraytayn after a week long battle with the remaining Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists holed-up in this desert region.

Backed by close Russian air support, the Syrian Arab Army took the battle to the Islamic State militants, today, liberating several points in the Al-Mahsaa Mountains that are located north of Quraytayn.

According to a military report, the Syrian Arab Army not only advanced at the Al-Mahsaa Mountains, but they also made significant progress at Jabail Mountain, which is also located north of Quraytayn in the Homs Governorate.

The report added that the army is mostly conducting cleansing operations that are focused on clearing different caves and sleeper cells around the Quraytayn area.

These sleeper cells in Quraytayn helped ISIS seize the ancient city and terrorize the remaining populous living in this vast desert area of Homs.

Its most welcome news to have Al masdar back on line.

It appears that the US control freaks are not happy to have in biased news from Syria, especially at a time when the US backed ISIS gangs were attacking via the US occupied Al Tamf zone.

Welcome back Al Masdar. Victory is approaching , justice and right order are approaching , through the blood sacrifices of heroic Syrian , Lebanese , Iranian and Iraqi citizens. This makes the enemies of peace , growth , development and Civilization desperate , it shows in their reactions. The enslavement of the Middle East has failed with the enormous help of our Russian brothers. Far better days are coming.

The enslavement of the Middle East has failed with the enormous help of our Russian brothers. Far better days are coming.
