"And I have found both freedom and safety in my madness, the freedom of loneliness and the safety from being understood, for those who understand us enslave something in us. But let me not be too proud of my safety. Even a Thief in a jail is safe from another thief. "

Government Forces Advancing On Multiple Frontlines In Southeastern Syria- South Front

The Syrian Arab Army (SAA), Hezbollah, the National Defense Forces (NDF), the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP) military wing and other pro-government factions are advancing on multiple frontlines in southeastern Syria. Government forces have successfully advanced in the countrysides of Palmyra and al-Qaryatayn as well as near the Syrian-Jordanian border.

The SAA and its allies gained more ground in the area east of al-Qaryatayn, reaching and capturing Jabal Baridah that had been controlled by ISIS. However, no major clashes were reported in the area.

According to some sources, ISIS had abadoned the whole area of the al-Busairi crossorads south of the Tiyas Airbase in the province of Homs. Thus, government forces just need to secure it.
