The Syrian Arab Army (SAA), the National Defense Forces (NDF), Liwa al-Quds and other pro-government units are advancing on the ISIS-held areas of Arak and the T3 airbase in the Palmyra countryside.
On Monday, the SAA, the NDF and others reached the eastern vicinity of the Arak village and deployed in a striking distance from the T3 airbase.
These operations are aimed at setting up a foothold for a push in the direction of Deir Ezzor as well regaining the Arak gas field that is important site for the Syrian energy system.
At the same time, government forces have been developing a momentum in the northeastern Homs countryside, aiming to recapture the village of Huwaisis from ISIS. Huwaisis is located at the important road linking the cities of Salamiyah and Palmyra.
