The Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” – backed by the National Defense Forces (NDF) – liberated several sites in the eastern countryside of Palmyra (Tadmur) on Sunday, advancing their positions to the outskirts of the oil rich town of ‘Arak.

However, the most important thing to take place on Sunday was the Tiger Forces’ entry into the oil rich part of east Homs.

For almost a year, the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) has been the primary benefactor of the large oil and gas fields in east Homs.

This region has arguably been one of the terrorist group’s most important economic investments because of the two main highways that are surrounded by Syrian commodities.

Now, the Syrian Armed Forces have entered this region; and it is time for them to make the first push to enter the desert village of ‘Arak.

Fully aware of the government’s intentions, ISIS has reinforced much of this area and the nearby town of Al-Sukhanah in order to maintain revenue pipeline and military siege over Deir Ezzor City.

In the coming days, the Tiger Forces – in coordination with the Russian Air Force – will make this imperative push and hopefully liberate this area once and for all.

I’d have blowed all the extraction systems and pumping stations as soon they have conqueered it as any attempt to rebuild, even if it may be costly to rebuild, the cost of letting them make profits is higher.
