Palmyra Operations: 2nd Convoy of Tiger Forces Arrives in Homs

The second convoy of Tiger Forces arrived at the T4 airbase in Homs on Thursday after the deployment of a large number of the Syrian army and Hezbollah troops in the province, a field source said.

The source said that a unit of Tiger Forces had earlier been sent from Aleppo to Homs, and added that the Desert Hawks are also likely to be dispatched to the region.

Noting that another group of Tiger Forces will be dispatched to Homs in the next few days, he said that several units of Tiger Forces have been assigned to the mission to protect the T4 airbase against the ISIL's massive attacks.

A large number of Army soldiers and popular forces are waiting for a Centcom order to start a massive offensive to push back the ISIL terrorist group from the recently occupied lands in the ancient city of Palmyra (Tadmur) and energy-rich regions in Eastern Homs.

After the arrival of fresh pro-government forces in Eastern Homs and improved weather conditions that made it possible for the Russian and Syrian warplanes to resume their flights in the region, the Damascus troops repelled ISIL's repeated attacks on T4 airbase and also took back a number of key positions near Palmyra and T4 base.

The pro-government forces are now waiting for an Centcom order to initiate a large-scale offensive on ISIL in Eastern Homs.

In the meantime, hundreds more of fresh forces are due to arrive in Homs in coming days.

On Wednesday, the Syrian army troops and air force targeted ISIL's concentration centers and gatherings in the ancient city of Palmyra and its outskirts, inflicting more than a dozen casualties on the terrorists.

The army men targeted the positions and movements of ISIL East of the Fourth Station and in Ba'ar al-Fawa'erah region West of Tadmur, killing over 13 militants and wounding several more.

The army aircraft also pounded ISIL's positions and movements in the city of Palmyra and nearby areas, in Badiyeh al-Qarbi (the Western Desert), the Fourth Station and the villages of al-Tiyas and Sharifeh in Eastern Homs, leaving a number of militants dead and their military vehicles, canons and rocket launchers destroyed.

Also, the army men stormed ISIL's gatherings in the villages of Habreh al-Sharqi, Habreh al-Qarbi, Rasm Hamideh, Jubb Habal, Abu Qatour, Unq al-Hawa, Abu Hawadid, Jubb Hamad and Sharifeh on Tuesday, killing or wounding a large number of militants.

In the meantime, the army troops targeted a gathering of Fatah al-Sham's commanders near al-Rastan town, killing and wounding several commanders.
