Islamic State Loses Homs to Syrian Army

As reported by Reuters news agency, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Saturday that Syrian government and allied forces have taken the last major town in Homs province from the Islamic State terrorist organization. The liberated town of al-Sukhna is 30 miles (50 km) northeast of the ancient city of Palmyra, which was captured by government forces in March. However, the town is also 30 miles from the administrative frontier of Deir al-Zor province, which is still under Islamic State control.
