BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:30 A.M.) – The Syrian military announced the reopening of the Palmyra-Sukhnah Highway in the eastern countryside of the Homs Governorate after a week long operation against the Islamic State (ISIS) near the strategic city of Al-Sukhnah.

According to a report from the military, the Palmyra-Sukhnah Highway was reopened after the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) successfully expelled the Islamic State terrorists from the Al-Hayl Gas Field that is located south of Al-Sukhnah.

The report added that the Syrian Arab Army is now attempting to clear the remaining points under the Islamic State’s control along the Sukhnah-Deir Ezzor Highway.

In order to reopen this highway, the Syrian Arab Army will need to retake the key town of Al-Shoulah, which is located directly west of Deir Ezzor’s provincial capital.
