Islamic State trapped in central Syria after strategic supply line lost

PanARMENIAN.Net - It was only a matter of time before the Islamic State found themselves besieged in the Hama Governorate; however, not many could have predicted the complete collapse of the terrorist group in the entire Syrian Desert, Al-Masdar News reports.

On Friday, August 18, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their allies reached the Al-Sha’er Mountains from their positions in the Ithriya countryside.

With the Syrian Army in control of every road leading the eastern countryside the Salamiyah District, the Islamic State is now forced to dig-in for a siege of the strategic town of ‘Uqayrbat, which has been their stronghold for over two years.

According to a military source in Hama, the Islamic State managed to withdraw most of their fighters from eastern Salamiyah before losing their final supply line to the area.

The source added that the Islamic State has mostly left suicide bombers in the area so that they can impede the Syrian Army’s liberation of ‘Uqayrbat, which is expected to occur in the coming days.
