Syrian pro-government forces have reinforced their positions in the country’s central region to stop ISIS attacks, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported on November 1.
Large reinforcements from the Quds Brigade and the Baqir Brigade were deployed in the town of al-Sukhnah in eastern Homs, and the town of Resafa in southern Raqqa.
According to the London-based monitoring group, the pro-government groups deployed military vehicles, weapons, ammunition and personnel in al-Sukhnah and Resafa.
Over the last few weeks, ISIS terrorists have launched several attacks from their stronghold in the central region, the Homs desert. The attacks targeted military positions in eastern Hama, eastern Homs and southern Raqqa.
“The organization [ISIS] is following hit-and-run tactics with the aim of inflicting the heaviest possible human and material losses on regime forces,” the SOHR’s report reads.
The SOHR claims that 150 Syrian service members were killed in the central region during October as a result of ISIS’ repeated attacks.
The terrorist group has also sustained heavy losses and has, so far, failed to make any gains in the central region. The group has been attempting to expand its influence in the region for around a year now.
