Moments ago, the Syrian Arab Army’s 67th Brigade of the 18th Tank Division – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF), Kata’eb Al-Ba’ath (Ba’ath Battalions) and Hezbollah – have taken full control of the Palmyra-Teefor Airbase Road after intense clashes with the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) near the Teefor Pumping Station in the Homs Governorate’s eastern countryside.

According to a military source in east Homs, the Syrian Armed Forces killed 29 enemy combatants from the terrorist group, while also destroying 4 armored vehicles that were either mounted with a 23mm anti-aircraft machine gun or a doshka.

The source added that the Syrian Armed Forces now control the entire road leading from the outskirts of the ancient city of Palmyra (Tadmur) to the strategic Teefor (T-4) Airbase; this airport was under attack by the terrorist group for over two months, but they have been repeatedly repelled by the Syrian Armed Forces stationed inside the base.

Currently, the Syrian Armed Forces and Lebanese Resistance are positioned at the outskirts of Palmyra after they secured the imperative hilltop at Tal SyriaTel; this hilltop sits to the west of the ancient city and at the western outskirts of the Qassioun Mountains.

Another Syrian Arab Army unit from the prestigious “Tiger Forces” are making their way to the northern outskirts of Palmyra after they recaptured the Jazal Mountains and oil fields from the terrorist group last week.

Much of their success along this front is due to the increased participation of their Russian military advisors, as they have provided the Syrian Arab Army’s Central Command with satellite imagery of the terrorist group’s movements around eastern Syria.
