The Syrian army’s Tiger Forces, the Desert Hawks Brigade and Hezbollah have been continuing efforts to expand a buffer zone near the Tyas Airbase in the Syrian province of Homs.
Government forces have made a series of attacks against ISIS units west, south and north of the airbase in order to push terrorists back and prevent artillery shelling of the government-held sites in the area.
Over 30 ISIS terrorists were killed as result of air raids by Russian attack helicopters and warplanes that supported this effort.
Nonetheless, government forces have not achieved a notable success in this goal.
The fighting is ongoing.
