Syrian Army scores new advance in central Syria, two villages liberated
The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) liberated more areas in the central region of Syria this week, following another major assault launched in the Homs Governorate’s Jubb Al-Jarrah District.
Led by the 5th Corps and 18th Tank Division, the Syrian Arab Army attacked several areas in the southeastern part of the Jubb Al-Jarrah District, today, scoring a new advance after a fierce battle with the so-called “Islamic State” (ISIL) forces.
According to the Syrian Ministry of Defense, the army liberated the villages of Rasm Humayd Al-Hibrah Al-Gharbiyah, along with several hills and mountains in southeastern Jubb Al-Jarrah.
The Syrian Arab Army is now progressing in the Jabal Al-Shumiriyah area, as they tighten the noose around the remaining Islamic State terrorists in this rugged region.
