BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:40 P.M.) – Albeit slow and partial, the offensive by pro-government forces against ISIS in central Homs does in fact continue. Today, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and its allies liberated a town and secured some key hilltops from the terrorist group in the region.

The settlement liberated today was the town of al-Baghliyah. After this pro-government forces, capitalizing on the capture of al-Baghliyah, advanced into the hills nearby, securing some high points that overlook another settlement, the town of Rasm Hamadah.

As a result of today’s advance, the town of Rasm Hamadah itself is soon expected to be liberated by the SAA and its allies as they have fire control over it.

Today’s advanced was covered by Russian attack helicopters which targeted ISIS vehicle movements in the area. This indicates that the command of the Russian air group is itself still interested in the central Homs, east Hama operation.

The premier SAA formation spearheading the offensive in central Homs is the 5th Assault Corps and, as can thus be expected, it was the main force behind today’s advance.
