On Wednesday, Syrian government forces liberated important hills southwest of Sukhna and established a fire control over the strategic ISIS-held town in the province of Homs. The advance was heavily supported by Russian and Syrian warplanes and attack helicopters.
Sukhna is one of the most important ISIS stronghold in the province. However, the town is surrounded by a number of heights. Thus, the side that controls these heights controls Sukhna. The Syrian military clearly understands this.
Reports about Sukhna have been fully liberated are untrue [26.07.2017, 22:31 CEST].
