Daesh [ISIS] retakes Mahin

On 10 December 2015 Daesh retook town of Mahin.

The town was taken by Assad’s forces on 22-23 November 2015, while Daesh had originally captured it on 31 October 2015. Thus, this is the third time the town is changing hands in the second half of 2015.

The town’s strategic importance comes from it being positioned close to the strategic Damascus-Homs highway.
