Syrian Army fully captures Shumriyah Mountains in Homs

The Syrian Army’s High Command announced their forces liberated the Shumriyah Mountains in the northern countryside of Palmyra.

Led by the 5th Legion, the Syrian Arab Army launched an important counter-attack last night to reclaim the territory they lost to the Islamic State forces earlier in the day.

According to al-Masdar, this counter-assault would ultimately pay off, as the Syrian Arab Army’s 5th Legion managed to break-through the Islamic State’s defenses and reclaim the large hilltop Tal Al-A’lam in the Shumriyah Mountains.

In addition, with the Shumriyah Mountains under their control, the Syrian Army can concentrate on the remaining gas wells under the Islamic State’s control in the Al-Sha’er Mountains of northeast Homs.
