BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:50 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has taken the initiative in the eastern countryside of Homs recently, striking the Islamic State’s (ISIL) last positions around the strategic desert-city of Palmyra.

On Wednesday, the Syrian Arab Army’s 5th Legion continued where they left off one week earlier, liberating the long stretch of hilltops at Talat Al-Tafhah.

Video footage of the Syrian Arab Army liberating the Talat Al-Tafhah area was released by the Syrian Ministry of Defense on Thursday:

The Syrian Arab Army is currently in the process of attacking the Islamic State’s last positions at the Al-Sha’er Mountains, which have been under the control of the terrorist group for more than 18 months.
