BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:55 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) scored another major advance in the eastern countryside of the Homs Governorate this week, as their forces liberated the town of Mushayrifah Al-Shamaliyah in the Jubb Al-Jarrah District.
Units from the Syrian Army’s 5th Legion began their operation to liberate Mushayrifah Al-Shamaliyah on Thursday, following their advance east towards the Al-Salihiyah area.
The 5th Legion was able to successfully take control of this town in the Jubb Al-Jarrah District after overrunning the Islamic State’s (ISIL) defenses.
Video footage of this operation was released on Saturday; it shows the SAA capturing large tunnels and bunkers that the Islamic State once used to shelter themselves from airstrikes
Since liberating this town, the Syrian Army has moved to the eastern perimeter of the Al-Salihiyah area, where they are preparing to launch their final attack.
