The Syrian army and National Defense Forces (NDF) won back the strategic heights of Syria Tal in the countryside of Arak region in the Eastern parts of Homs, paving the ground for liberation of al-Sukhnah region.

"After retaking control of Arak region and the third power plant, the Syria Tal heights along with several other hills were liberated by the Syrian army and resistance forces," a field source told FNA on Thursday.

"These liberated heights are located on the way of the strategic region of al-Sukhnah and the Syrian forces are now 24km from that region," he added.

The Syrian forces had recaptured the strategic Arak oilfield near the ancient city of Palmyra (Tadmur) in Homs province on Monday.

The Syrian government forces, backed up by the heavy shelling of artillery units, stormed the Takfiri terrorists' positions East of Palmyra (Tadmur) and took full control of Arak oilfield.

The Syrian army and NDF have managed to reach Arak region after purging the Third Power Plant of ISIL terrorists.

Over 25 ISIL terrorists were killed in the Syrian army's operations on Monday.

The Syrian army is now planning to seize back the strategic al-Sukhnah region which is located to the East of Arak oilfield.

Al-Sukhnah region is at the juncture of three provinces of Deir Ezzur, Homs and Hama.
