ISIL) launched an offensive in the northeastern countryside of the Homs Governorate, Wednesday, targeting the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) positions in the Jubb Al-Jarrah District..

ISIL’s offensive began at dawn this morning when their militants began storming the Syrian Arab Army’s positions near the town of Maksar Al-Hossan.

Attempting to advance from the Rahoum axis, the Islamic State forces attacked the Syrian Army’s defenses for nearly six hours today before withdrawing from the Maksar Al-Hossan area due to their heavy losses.

According to a source from the 11th Tank Division, the Syrian Army killed over 15 Islamic State terrorists in under six hours at the Maksar Al-Hossan axis before securing this area.

The Islamic State was attempting to alleviate pressure on their forces near the town of Jubab Hamad; however, this attack changed very little at the northeastern Homs front.
