Syrian Army recovers all lost points during the ISIS offensive in east Homs
On Monday, the Syrian Arab Army’s 3rd Division, backed by the National Defense Forces (NDF) and Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP), restored all the points they lost to the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) on Sunday night in the Quraytayn countryside.
According to an Al-Masdar field correspondent, the Syrian Arab Army’s 3rd Division withdrew from some points near the Al-Muhassah Mountains in southeast Homs after poor visibility left them susceptible to VBIED attacks by the Islamic State terrorists.
However, the following morning, the Syrian Arab Army’s 3rd Division and their allies launched a counter-offensive that proved to be successful, as they recaptured all of the territory they lost in the Al-Muhassah Mountains of southeast Homs.
The Islamic State has attempted repeatedly to advance in this area of the Homs Governorate after losing the imperative town of Quraytayn in March 2016; all attacks have been repelled by the Syrian Armed Forces.
