Syrian pro-government forces are conducting new security operations against ISIS remnants in the country’s central region.
The al-Quds Brigade, a Palestinian pro-government force, and units of the National Defense Forces (NDF) are currently conducting a new operation against the terrorist group’s cells in the Homs desert.
A video of the operation was released by the al-Quds Brigade on June 9. The video shows the group’s fighters combing the desert between Homs and Raqqa.
A similar operation was launched on June 10 by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in Deir Ezzor’s western desert, according to the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR).
The recent security operations inflicted serious losses on ISIS cells in the central region. The terrorist group is now launching less attacks there. However, the SAA and pro-government forces will likely need more time to fully neutralize the terrorist threat.
