One month after the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) launched their large-scale offensive in the western countryside of Palmyra (Tadmur), the Syrian Arab Army’s 67th Brigade of the 18th Tank Division has regained the initiative along the Palmyra-Homs Highway that stretches across the vast desert of the Homs Governorate.

Earlier this morning, the Syrian Arab Army’s 67th Brigade – in close coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF), Kataebat Al-Ba’ath (Al-Ba’ath Battalions), and the Russian Air Force – imposed full control over the small desert village of Al-Bayarat in the northwestern countryside of Palmyra, forcing the remaining ISIS terrorists to retreat towards the ancient city itself.

The Syrian Armed Forces have been on a roll as of late in the western countryside of Palmyra, capturing several meters of territory from the ISIS terrorists that are spread all along the ancient city’s outskirts in anticipation for a major assault.

Giving the Syrian Arab Army a substantial boost from above, the Russian Air Force pounded ISIS’ defensive positions with several airstrikes that left the aforementioned terrorist group paralyzed along this volatile front.

Currently, the Syrian Armed Forces and ISIS are clashing at the small village of Al-Dawa, where the pro-government forces are attempting to take full control of the area.
