BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:40 A.M.) – The Syrian military carried out a vicious missile attack against the Islamic State (ISIL) forces present in the eastern countryside of the Al-Salamiyah District, last night, inflicting heavy damage on the terrorist group’s stronghold.

According to a military source, the Syrian military carried out this attack for several hours last night, targeting the Islamic State’s primary defenses at the key town of ‘Uqayrbat.

‘Uqayrbat is the Islamic State’s primary stronghold in the eastern countryside of Hama; if captured by the Syrian Arab Army, the terrorist group would an important town along their main supply route from rural Homs and Al-Raqqa.

The Syrian Arab Army is expected to launch this offensive in the coming days, as reinforcements have already arrived to aid in this assault.
