Homs

After ISIS captured the ancient city of Palmyra and some gas fields in central Homs, the battle gravitated naturally to the Tiyaas Airbase (T4), a vital airbase that is a jumping-off point for air attacks and close air support (CAS) operations against ISIS in eastern Homs, Al-Raqqa and Deir El-Zor. The airbase is adequately staffed and enjoys up-to-date infra-structure and its location is strategically ideal for plans to eradicate ISIS in all the eastern part of Syria.

ISIS and its NATO allies understand the Tiyas airbase’s (T4) importance very well and it was, most likely, their main target on this latest offensive toward Palmyra.
