Latest field update of central Syria battle: map
The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has liberated a large chunk of the Islamic State’s (ISIL) last pocket in central Syria, putting them within in range of clearing the entire region once and for all.
Led by the 5th Legion, the Syrian Arab Army scored a big advance in the Jubb Al-Jarrah District of east Homs, today, liberating at least three towns that were previously under the control of the Islamic State.
As a result of this advance, the Syrian Arab Army was able to liberate more than 35 square kilometers of territory after a fierce battle with the Islamic state terrorists present in the Jubb Al-Jarrah District.
With only a small part of the Salamiyah and Jubb Al-Jarrah districts left to liberate, the Syrian Arab Army should be in full control of this region in the coming weeks.
