BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:30 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has scored another important advance in central Syria, liberating a large portion of territory occupied by the so-called Islamic State (ISIL) inside the Homs Governorate.

Led by the 5th Legion, the Syrian Arab Army stormed the Islamic State’s pocket in the eastern part of the Jubb Al-Jarrah District, killing over 15 terrorists as they advanced through the rugged terrain.

According to a military source in Palmyra, the Syrian Arab Army liberated the towns of Umm Al-Raish, Masadah, Rasm Al-Naqah, and Al-Zaybah, putting them in control of more than 35 square kilometers of territory.

As a result of today’s advance, the Syrian Arab Army is almost in full control of the Jubb Al-Jarrah District, which has been the Islamic State’s main enclave in the region since losing Palmyra and Sukhnah.
