Syrian Army Drives Terrorists Back From More Heights Southeast of Homs Province
The Syrian army, the National Defense Forces (NDF), Liwa Suqour al-Sham (Desert Hawks Brigade) and Dara’a Qalamoun (Qalamoun Shield) continued their advance towards the strategic city of Quaryatayn, striking the ISIL positions at the important hilltop of Tal Quaryatayn.
The Syrian Armed Forces were able to seize the Western perimeter of Tal Quaryatayn after an intense battle with the ISIL terrorists protecting this hilltop.
In addition to their advance at Tal Quraytayn, the Syrian Armed Forces continued their military operations at Jabal al-Mahasa in Southern Quraytayn, attacking a number of ISIL controlled hilltops along the main road to the ancient Assyrian city.
On Friday, the Syrian army and its allies imposed full control over the village of al-Bayarat after a violent battle with the ISIL militants.
Following the capture of al-Bayarat, the Syrian army men and their allies advanced to nearby al-Dawah and captured at least half of the village following an intense battle with the ISIL combatants.
