The army units in cooperation with the popular defense groups established full control over al-Hadath village, located 82 km southeast of Homs city in the central Homs province, a military source announced on Tuesday.

 

The source told SANA that the army units eliminated a number of gatherings of ISIS terrorists and destroyed many of their vehicles in al-Hadath and later combed the village, where they dismantled tens of explosive devices planted near the locals’ houses and in farms.

 

The army has continued advancing towards Hawarin and Mhein villages and al-Qaryatain city, the source said.
