Syrian Army Makes Progress In Eastern Homs Countryside, Liberates Village And Nearby Hills En Route To Uqayribat

Donate

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA), the National Defense Forces (NDF) and their allies, backed up by the Russian Aerospace Forces, have liberated the village of Baghliyah and nearby hills from ISIS terrorist sin the eastern Homs countryside. This advance allowed government forces to outlfank Dabat Milli, Taliah Sharqiyah and to deploy in a striking distance from Rasm Hamidah.

The general idea of this advance is to put additional pressure on ISIS terrorists north of the Homs-Palmyra highway and to contribute to a wider effort aimed at isolating and destroying a large ISIS grouping deployed at the town of Uqayribat.

The SAA, the NDF and other pro-government units have been struggling to do this since June. However, ISIS has a strong defense in the area and is determined to prevent this scenario. An intense fighting is ongoing on multiple fronts in the area.

    Syria war would become most slowest war in history.

      have you heard about the 100 year war?

      • Kids in Africa

        I am talking about slowest advance in war not about 100 years war being fought over this long.

        • only been about 7 years

          The fighting in this area is full of hills and overlooks it should be slow going since this isn’t a major push more about creating Pockets of IS to cook to death. This way there is no real way to counter attack in the region, just shoot from behind cover and vantage points.

      Do you know the very difficult terrain of Central Syria?

    • Hrky75

      Vietnam war (France and US) – 30 years, Afghanistan war (Russian) -10 years, War on Terror – 16 years… I think Syrians rather fast compared to competition…

  • Thegr8rambino

    when in doubt, pincer lol :))))

    • Red Tick Alert

      In my view, it did take them an awfully long time to learn that. But more good news, so await some Yank or Israeli “un-anticipated attack”

        better late than never!
