Syrian Army Preempts Al-Nusra’s Heavy Offensive in Homs Province


The Syrian Army’s artillery and missile units shelled heavily the positions and movements of the Al-Nusra Front (Tahrir al-Sham Hay’at or the Levant Liberation Board) in Northeastern Homs on Monday, inflicting major losses on the terrorists.

The artillery and missile units, tipped off by intelligence agents, pounded Al-Nusra positions and movements near Quneitrat and al-Hamrat regions in Northeastern Homs, preempting the terrorist group’s plan to launch a heavy attack in the region.

Also, a field source said that a number of Al-Nusra members were killed and their military equipment and weapons were damaged in the army fire.

Field sources said last week that the army dispatched a large number of soldiers and a large volume of equipment to Eastern Deir Ezzur after they purged Hama and Aleppo province of ISIL.

The sources said that the army is planning to kick off an imminent operation to hunt the remaining pockets of ISIL terrorists in the desert regions between Eastern Homs and Western Deir Ezzur.
