Government Forces Pressure ISIS Terrorists East Of Arak Gas Field In Eastern Homs

Support SouthFront

Syrian government forces, led by Liwa al-Quds and Hezbollah units, have further advanced against ISIS northeast of the Arak gas field in the eastern part of Homs province.

Army troops and their allies have captured a number of hills and reached the important Rammim Hill west of the Hail gas field. Controlling the Rammim Hill, government forces will be able to set fire control over the vicinity of the Hail gas field and to regain the field from ISIS soon. This also contributes to a wider effort aimed at liberating the strategic town of al-Sukhnah.

Taking high point Rammin Hill 551 is a good move to advance up M20.
Hopefully the SAA advance will pick up on this front, maybe also a flanking move from T3 from the south. Solomon told me there was no movement on this front, I guess he was lying. :D

There is always movement since this is slow going in clearing out snipers and saboteurs and mines makes it take longer , believe they already secured the hill and further in the T3 area .

Solomon’s point is that the pace of the SAA advance from Palmyra along the M20 toward Deir ez-Zur is painfully painfully slow. Back in mid March this year the SAA was recapturing the Mustadira gas field. This is just 20 km up the M20 north east of Palmyra. See:

Now three and a half months later they have advanced a further 25 km up the M20 to Rammim Hill capturing Arak and its gas field on the way. In those 112 days the SAA have advanced at an average of 0.22 km per day. It will take them 2 years to get to Deir ez-Zur at this rate.


The problem is SAA has to deal with ISIS out in front of their eastern offensive – but absorb and deal with ongoing offensives from FSA/US special forces to their southern flank, and various militant factions at their rear around east Damascus and Daraa. This is coordinated militant activity – they operate with intelligence and strategy directed from foreign US military control room in Jordan – and is endlessly frustrating for SAA strategy to secure centre-east.


Why? Because the US head-chopping, heart-eating rapers have been resisting the advance. The US head-chopping, heart-eating rapers can’t be in two places at once, which is why the Syrians have advanced faster elsewhere. Notice how cautious and methodical the Syrian advance from Palmyra has been? It’s like the Fifth Army advance up the Ancre valley in early 1917.


They are securing the hills and elevations on either side of M20, the process is time consuming.


Each advance south of Aleppo, east of Palmyra and along the Iraqi border forces the US head-chopping, heart-eating rapers to split their forces so that the Syrians can advance in one place and then another. All the US head-chopping, heart-eating rapers can do is play for time and hope that Trump lets rip….er, as it were….
