The Syrian government army has completely liberated the city of Homs from Daesh and has gained full control of it. The fighting is now raging in the southeast of the Homs Governorate. Government forces are planning an assault on Daesh in Deir ez-Zor, the largest city in eastern Syria.
The Syrian city of Homs, the capital of the Homs Governorate in western Syria, located 162 kilometers north of Damascus, is now under the full control of the Syrian government. Peace and order have returned to the settlement.
Meanwhile, the Syrian army continues liberating the Homs Governorate. It has taken new positions in the eastern part of the Governorate after securing its positions at the nearby heights. All that remains for the army is to remove the terrorists from a small area of al Suhna in the southeast of the Governorate.
It will then launch an assault on Daesh in Deir ez-Zor, the largest city in eastern Syria and the seventh largest in the country, which is located 450 km to the northeast of the capital Damascus.
