ISIS has regained control of the Abadonned Battalion area, the Defense Hill and the village of Sharifah from Syrian government forces and de-facto besieged the government-held Tyas airbase in the Syrian province of Homs.
The Homs-Palmyra highway is not fully cut off for the Syrian army and its allies. Last night some 200 Hezbollah fighters reportedly arrived the Tyas Airbase. However, ISIS has a fire control of a part part of the highway near the Airbase.
In general, the Syrian military and its allies can deploy more forces than ISIS has on the battle ground now. But government forces have a lack of time for this.
In a separated development ISIS terrorists attacked the area of Umm at-Tababir at the Homs-Palmyra highway. ISIS units exploit their advantage in maneuvrability and attempt to cut off supply lines of the Syrian army.
There is also a chance that if the terrorist group is not able to seize the Tyas Airbase, it will attack the city of al-Qaryatayn. ISIS already hit a government forces checkpoint between Al-Qaryatayn and Furqlus by a a vehicle-borne improvised explosive device (VBIED).
