Syrian government forces, with the support of the Lebanese Hezbollah movement and Russian military air forces, surrounded the militants of the terrorist organization “Islamic State” north of the city of Sukhne in the north-eastern part of Homs province.

According to the source, in the course of the operation, “Tiger Force” met with other army units north of the city of Sukhne and closed the encirclement ring after they were taken under the control of the Az-Zahik, Khirbet at-Tilaa and Wadi Abu Killa.

Earlier, the Syrian army defeated the largest stronghold of the IS in the province of Homs, freeing the city of Sukhne. The surviving groups of terrorists were forced to flee to the desert north in the direction of the city of Deir ez-Zor.
