Hama

The Syrian army backed by the country’s air force continued its military operations against the ISIL in Eastern Hama province and managed to take control of more strategic heights and also pave the way for its advances towards a strategic dam.

The government forces recaptured Debareh al-Dibeh hilltop after engaging in heavy clashes with the ISIL terrorists in the Eastern countryside of Hama.

Meantime, the Syrian army forces continued military operations in Eastern Hama and Homs to drive ISL out of the Badiyeh region, and seized back control of two strategic regions in the two provinces.

The army troops continued advances in Petrol Line route in the Southern parts of the town of Aqarib in Eastern Hama – the ISIL’s last base in Syria’s Badiyeh region- and regained control of Tabarat al-Dibeh region after winning back the strategic hill of Tabarat al-Dibeh.

They also drove ISIL back from the Northern mountain of al-Tadmuriyeh after liberation of Arak region, the energy field and dam, by advancing towards al-Sukhnah, the ISIL’s last bastion in Eastern Homs and the main gate for entering Deir Ezzur province.

The Syrian army troops continued their advances against ISIL in Eastern Homs and recaptured Arak energy field on Thursday, moving towards the strategic town of al-Sukhnah along the main road to the terrorist-held city of Deir Ezzur.

A military source announced that after taking control over Arak energy field the army soldiers are to move towards al-Sukhnah that is the last ISIL base in Homs province and a gate to Deir Ezzur province.

Homs

The Syrian army, supported by the air force, continued military operations against the ISIL in Eastern Homs and advanced towards the strategic city of al-Sukhnah after regaining control over several points.

The army forces continued clashes with terrorists after seizing back Arak energy field and retook control of Ba’ar al-Hafneh and Arak dam in the outskirts of Palmyra (Tadmur).

Meantime, the Syrian air force pounded ISIL’s positions and moves in the Eastern parts of Arak region, areas near the third station and Western Tayebeh in Palmyra region, destroying several command centers, cars and military equipment.

The Syrian army has managed to block one of ISIL’s most important financial resources after the recent achievements and victories in the Eastern parts of Homs and regaining control over Arak energy field.

Military analysts believe that the army’s control over Arak oil field in Northeastern Palmyra (Tadmur) has opened a new door to start and accelerate the operations in the region towards the ISIL’s main bastion in Eastern Homs, the town of al-Sukhnah, Palmyra-Deir Ezzur road and then towards breaking the terrorists’ siege on Deir Ezzur city and airbase.

Analysts believe that the capture of Arak energy field is strategically important because the Syrian army forces have been able to increase security in Palmyra city despite the fact that hundreds of ISIL terrorists have fled Raqqa towards Palmyra- before the eyes of the US-led coalition forces.

The army’s concurrent operations from several pivots in Eastern Palmyra, Western Raqqa, Eastern Aleppo and Eastern Salamiyeh has played a decisive role in cutting the ISIL’s supply routes between its bases in Badiyeh (desert) and purging terrorists from thousands of kilometers of the Syrian territories.
