On September 13, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) cleared a large area in the eastern Homs countryside in the framework of its military operation against ISIS cells in the Homs desert, which began four days ago, according to the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA).

During its advance, the SAA discovered and destroyed several hideouts of the terrorist organization and captured a terrorist. Furthermore, the army seized loads of weapons, medical supplies, satellite communication devices and a vehicle.

A day earlier, the SAA advanced along the road heading toward the T3 pumping station in the eastern Homs countryside and liberated the settlements of Wadi Salhub and Bi’r Hajjah. About 24km of the road are still in the hands of ISIS cells.

According to Syrian pro-government sources, the Russian Aerospace Forces have been supporting the SAA operation in the Homs desert since day one. The overwhelming air power forced ISIS fighters to flee their positions in the open desert.

      No, it is just red sand spots, very common in fortified or built positions in the desert.

        u are a spoil sport in a way but you are wrong in this case. Study the photo and you see that where the blood is they spill water to dissolve it, before lay down the spoils of war this is why the earth is wet in those places. But completely dry where was no blood.

        Standard practice so the guns and other gear dont become full of blood.
