According to reports, ISIS units entered the villages of al-Buhamad, Athshana, Salem Hamad and Ghanim Ali where heavy clashes erupted.

Initially some sources claimed that ISIS recaptured the villages from the SAA, but no photos or videos to confirm this were pprovided. In turn, pro-government sources denied claims about the ISIS advance.

On Wednesday, the clashes continued in the area west of Maadan with ISIS units were attempting to boost a buffer zone near the ISIS-held town.
