The Syrian Arab Armed Forces continue to advance in the north-east of Homs. With the support of the Russian Aerospace Forces, parts of the 5th Army Corps and the 11th Panzer Division attacked the positions of terrorists.
In the north-east of Homs, government forces drove out the IS* fighters and took Dabat al-Mala under full control.
Meanwhile in the east of the province the Syrian army came very close to the town of Sukhne. The distance from it to the advanced units of the Armed Forces is 7-8 km. Government forces captured the dominant heights that lay before the city, and now keep it under fire control.
