Syrian troops have liberated the village of Humaymah Saghira from ISIS terrorists. The village is located southwest of the ISIS stronghold of Deir Hafer.
The liberation of Humaymah Saghira followed the successfull government advance on Humaymah al-Kabira located directly west of Deir Hafer.
The operation in Humaymah Saghira sets a ground for outlflanking Deir Hafer from the southern direction. Government forces are now able to advance on Umm al-Mara. If this village is liberated from ISIS, the Syrian army and its allies will be able to attack Deir Hafer from two directions simultaneously and to increase the chances on retaking the ISIS stronghold without significant casualties.
