On 22-23 November 2015 forces of the Assad regime have re-taken the town of Mahin from ISIS.
The town had been captured by ISIS on 31 October 2015. As a result, the jihadists approached Damascus-Homs highway, crucial for survival of the Assad regime. Thus, Assad’s counter-attack on Mahin was a logical development. Town of Hawwarin, located some hundreds meters from Mahin, has been taken by the Assad forces as well.
Loss of Mahin is another link in what has become a chain of ISIS defeats happening on various fronts – against Kurds and Syrian rebels as well as Assad.
