BREAKING: ISIS Launches Offensive After US Pounds Syrian Military Base
Everyone knew it was coming, but who could have guessed that it would begin so quickly?
Islamic State has just launched an offensive in the eastern countryside of the Homs Governorate, according to Al Masdar News.
Capitalizing on the U.S. missile strikes, the Islamic State stormed the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) checkpoints near the strategic town of Al-Furqalas.
According to local sources, the Islamic State has yet to make any gains near Al-Fuqalas, but without necessary air support, the situation could worsen in the coming hours.
The Shayrat Military Airport is one of the Syrian Air Force’s most important installations in the fight against the Islamic State due to its proximity to the Palmyra and Deir Ezzor fronts.
