The Liwa al-Quds media wing has released a video showing Liwa al-Quds’ artillery units shelling ISIS positions in the eastern Hama countryside. The video was filmed on July 30.
Liwa al-Quds, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and the National Defense Forces (NDF) are now conducting a long-standing military operation against ISIS in the area. The goal of the operation is to put additional pressure on ISIS units north of the Homs-Palmyra highway.
In July, government forces attempted to retake the ISIS-held town of Uqayribat. However, they were not able to achieve this goal because of a stiff resistance from ISIS terrorists and a low level of coordination among various pro-government units in the area.
