According to the Tiger Forces’ media wing, the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies imposed full control over the Al-‘Amariyah District in northern Palmyra (Tadmur) after a fierce battle with the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) this morning.

The Al-‘Amariyah District is the key to Palmyra’s northern sector; its capture this morning will allow the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies to conduct a flank maneuver in order to flood the terrorists out of the city.

While the situation in the northern countryside of Palmyra appears to be getting better, the the current battle in southern Palmyra is deadlocked near the military airport, as the Syrian Armed Forces struggle to advance.

Meanwhile, in the western part of the city, the Syrian Armed Forces were forced to retreat to the Palmyra Archaeological Zone after ISIS recaptured the Badiyah District last night.

The Tiger Forces are leading the operations in Palmyra; however, they are backed by Hezbollah, the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra (Desert Hawks Brigade), Fouj Al-Mughawayr Al-Bahir (Syrian Marines), Liwaa Imam Ali (Iraqi paramilitary), Badr Brigades (Iraqi paramilitary), the National Defense Forces (NDF), and Liwaa Al-Fatemiyoun (Afghani paramilitary).

Feith: the tactic is to FLUSH the fighters out of the city (which was FLOODED by them). Sentinel: remember Zabadani (and Ramadi). In the open or in small settlements it is OK to flatten them with artillery etc. In the city, you can destroy them with the city, and even that is not clear because they prepared many tunnels.
