Damascus-Homs Highway officially under Syrian Army control for first time since 2011 – map
BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:10 P.M.) – For the first times since 2011, the entire Damascus-Homs Highway is officially under the control of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).
Thanks in large part to the latest evacuations of the rebel forces in the region, the Syrian military was able to impose full control over the Al-Rastan Plain, which was long under the control of the Free Syrian Army (FSA).
With this area now cleared, the Syrian Army can readily access the provincial capital of the Hama Governorate from Damascus, while also shortening the amount of time it takes to get to the Aleppo Governorate.
More importantly, the large number of Syrian Army soldiers that were deployed in northern Homs will no be freed for other operations around the country.
