ISIS MAINTAINS STRONGHOLD IN CENTRAL SYRIA

ISIS

The city of Uqayribat in the eastern part of Hama governorate remains the main ISIS base of operations in central Syria.

It’s location gives terrorist the ability to attack in multiple directions hitting several strategic assets in the area, such as the road connecting Aleppo and Homs provinces or Shaer gas field. Despite regular attacks by SAA and RuAF the city and it’s outskirts are still mostly under ISIS control. Local intelligence sources report that at least 14 terrorist’s camps and more that 4,500 fighters are concentrated to the North of Uqayribat, while the city itself serves as a transit point and coordination center.
