 BEIRUT, LEBANON (12:20 P.M.) – Minutes ago, the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) High Command announced their forces liberated the Shumriyah Mountains in the northern countryside of Palmyra after more than 48 hours of non-stop fighting with the Islamic State (ISIL) terror organization.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.
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.
With the Shumriyah Mountains under their control, the Syrian Arab Army can now concentrate on the remaining gas wells under the Islamic State’s control in the Al-Sha’er Mountains of northeast Homs.

BEIRUT, LEBANON (2:45 P.M.) – Earlier today, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) seized the Shumriyah Mountains in the northern countryside of Palmyra, killing and wounding several Islamic State (ISIL) in the process of this advance.
Video footage of the Syrian Arab Army seizing the Shumriyah Mountains was captured by Hezbollah’s media wing; it shows the moment the government forces expelled the remaining Islamic State terrorists.
With the Shumriyah Mountains under their control, the Syrian Arab Army can now concentrate on the remaining gas wells in Al-Sha’er Mountains.
Once the Al-Sha’er Mountains are liberated, the Syrian Arab Army will shift their attention to the eastern countryside of Al-Salamiyah, where they hope to disrupt the Islamic State’s main supply route from Homs to Al-Raqqa once-and-for-all.
