Syrian Army captures new points along Homs-Hama border


The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) struck back against the Islamic State (ISIL) in the eastern countryside of Homs, today, after repelling a major assault earlier in the day.

Units from the Syrian Arab Army’s 18th Tank Division, with help from the National Defense Forces (NDF), chipped away at the Islamic State’s defenses near the Jibab Hamad area, scoring a new advance after a short battle.

According to a military report, the Syrian Arab Army captured 3 points near Jibab Hamad after foiling the Islamic State’s infiltration attempt into the town of Manoukh along the Taftah Hills.

 While the area still remains in danger of an Islamic State attack, the Syrian Arab Army and their allies from the Desert Hawks are gearing up for a big offensive to clear this region once and for all.
