On September 14, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) captured the villages of al-Nariyah, al-Rashidiyah and al-Sauarim in the Homs desert following heavy clashes with ISIS cells, according to Syrian pro-government sources. During their advance, Syrian soldiers destroyed several hideouts and vehicles of the terrorist group.

In the last two days, the SAA cleared a large area in the eastern Homs countryside and liberated the settlements of Wadi Salhub and Bi’r Hajjah in the framework of its military operation against ISIS cells in the Homs desert.

The operation, which began on September 9, is led by the SAA and backed by the Russian Aerospace Forces. The tribal force of the National Defense Forces (NDF) will also join the operation in the upcoming hours.

Local observers believe that around 1,000 fighters and commanders of ISIS are currently hiding in the Homs desert, which lays between the eastern Homs countryside and the western Deir Ezzor countryside.

Despite of the high number of terrorists in the desert, the nature of the region, which lacks any large urban areas or natural fortifications, will likely allow the SAA to complete its mission within few weeks.

God bless the sons of Syria, the Syrian Arab Army!

It is very crucial to secure this disert area from UK and US affiliates because these ISIS and Israel are wings of UK and US.

Icarus Tanović

Let’s Napalm them, all fucking over.

Carne João Pasta

No shit. Treating them like they are some special part of society or some kind of sports team. Disgusts me that our gov is behind this all.

Provoking retalliation strikes from FUKUS + others? Who would be so stupid!

Remember that 30 hostages are still somewhere!

Icarus Tanović

That’s in Al Suwayda, Liz. Inform your self, then post stupid things.

Elisabeth Jenders

according to a recent article, they may well have been moved to Homs desert.

Icarus Tanović

That’s on the different side of the country. That’s not possible without being noticed by SAA.

Merijn

Icarus Tanović

Let’s just give them a hand with the heat of Napalm.

Merijn

No need to be a target when visibility can be minimized.

Merijn

Merijn

The Encirclement, cutting off water sources or shooting them like Game when they try to reach Waterholes and soon these Headchoppers Will Die of Thirst….a Siege Saves Soldiers… seems the Headchoppers are in Panic and want to break out…just let them rot in the Desert & their Caves…
