On August 22, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) Tiger Forces successfully continued their operation against ISIS and liberated Dahr Hamra, Latum Ghabiri, Souq, Qasr Hayr Sharqi and Kuwayr in the province of Homs.
On August 23, the Tiger Forces developed momentum in the Zaheq Mount area west of Dahr Matla. They need to secure the entire mountain to close the pocket. Separately the SAA advanced in the northern direction from Sukhna and seized Wadi Abu Zillah.
The gap between the government-held areas north of Sukhna and south of Taybah are now about 5 km.
Media also speculate that the Tiger Forces seized Rujm al Hajanah and Jabal Dabbah in the direction of Deir Ezzor.
