Syrian Army on Verge of Retaking Strategic Region in Eastern Homs
The army units launched a fierce attack on ISIL moves and gathering centers in al-Talilah crossroad in the Eastern parts of Homs, killing several militants and destroying their military vehicles.
The Syrian soldiers also launched heavy offensives on ISIL in the Western parts of the crossroad and drove the terrorists out of several points near the region.
A field source reported that the army troops are now on the verge of regaining full control of this strategic point in Eastern Homs, and added that the army will start operations to take back al-Talilah village after seizing control over the crossroad.
Also on Saturday, the Syrian army scored more victories against the terrorists in Eastern Homs and advanced in important areas East of the ancient city of Palmyra.
According to al-Masdar news, the army soldiers continued military operations in Eastern Palmyra and seized back control of all oilfields near al-Mustadireh mountain after regaining the heights from the militants.
Reports said that tens of ISIL terrorists were killed during the army operations in the region.
The Syrian Army troops continued their anti-ISIL operations in the Eastern suburbs of Palmyra to stretch their chain of security around the ancient city, informed sources said.
The sources said that the army spent a great deal of time this week to attack the ISIL’s positions around the newly-liberated ancient city of Palmyra, expanding their buffer-zone around the city via forcing ISIL to withdraw from several positions in order to reinforce important regions, including Arak gas fields and T-3 Pumping Station.
They added that the army soldiers liberated several sites from the terrorist group, including the strategic Mazar mountains and Palmyra gas fields North of the city.
The army men also launched another powerful attack this morning that concentrated on the al-Talilah crossroad and al-Antar Mountains at two different fronts.
Al-Talilah crossroad is located in Palmyra’s Eastern countryside, while the al-Antar mountains are to the North of the city.
