Syrian Army liberates large hilltop in southeast Homs



The Syrian Arab Army’s 67th Brigade of the 18th Tank Division – backed by the 120th Brigade of the 2nd Division and the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP) – imposed full control over the large hilltop of Tal SyriaTel in southeast Homs after a violent battle with the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) on Tuesday morning.

According to a military source in Damascus City, Tal SyriaTel is situated approximately 20 km east of the recently liberated city of Quraytayn, which is located in the vast Syrian Desert of southeastern Homs. Since liberating both Palmyra (Tadmur) and Quraytayn, the Syrian Armed Forces have found themselves under assault by the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham at this desert front; however, they have been able to beat back all of the terrorist group’s attacks.
