BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:30 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) elite Tiger Forces continue to push into northeastern Homs Governorate following a stunning paratrooper operation yesterday that caught ISIS militants in the region completely off-guard. The goal of the Tiger Forces on this front is to link up with troops of the 5th Assault Corps at the town of al-Sukhnah.

Today footage was released showing soldiers of the Tiger Forces’ Shaheen Group gearing up and moving out at Khirbet al-Saway and its nearby gas field area. The troops in the video are now are just few kilometers away from the strategic town of al-Kom.

If these troops liberate al-Kom, this will put the SAA within striking distance of the town of al-Taibah which commands the last ISIS supply line that runs into and out of the eastern Hama, central Homs region.

The SAA is currently working on forcing ISIS to conducted a full strategic withdrawal from its bastion in eastern Hama and central Homs by threatening the encircle thousands of the terrorist group’s fighters there in a pocket that would be roughly the size of Lebanon.
