  • Forces loyal to Syria’s President Bashar al Assad flash victory signs and carry a Syrian national flag on the edge of the historic city of Palmyra

Syrian government forces and its allies seized full control of the last Islamic State stronghold in Homs province.

The Syrian Army released footage on Sunday (August 13) of the barren streets of al-Sukhna, northeast of the ancient city of Palmyra, following the withdrawal of Islamic State soldiers.

These gains enable further advances into eastern areas held by Islamic State (ISIS), including the province of Deir al-Zor, where the circle around jihadists is slowly forming as the government forces are pushing from their positions in southern parts of Raqqa province. The SDF is now focused on capturing Raqa city from Daish.

On Saturday, the Syrian army supported by its Air Force repelled a Daesh attack on Deir ez-Zor.

Daish controls almost all of Deir Al Zor province, which is bordered to the east by Iraq.
