Homs II

Northern Homs and Southern Hamah, known as the heart of  regarding its strategic military location, as it connects the supply lines between the north and the south. Rebels took control of large territories in this area in the beginning of the armed revolution, but they were not able to stay in control after the heavy offensives launched by the Syrian Regime and Hezbollah in the late of 2012 and early 2013, but they were able to gather themselves in the northern countryside of Homs. In the early of 2014, Rebels lost all their presence in Homs city after they retreated in an agreement with the Regime to leave the area after more than two years of the Rebel resistance inside the besieged city.

Currently, few Rebel offensives on the military checkpoints near Salamiyah in Southern Hamah and the Regime-held villages in the west of Talbisah in Northern Homs. Few ambushes taking place in the areas near Orontes (al-‘Āṣī) River, mainly near al-Rastan and Ghawr al-‘Āṣī, as few daily clashes taking place at the front-lines between:

  • Hosh Hajju and Ashrafiyah
  • Ayn Hussein and Ayn Dananir (Ghasibiyah)
  • Qunaytrat/SalimTahtani and Khunayfis/Dunaybah
  • al-Kafat and Ramiliyah
