Minutes ago in the east Homs countryside, the Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” – backed by Hezbollah, the Desert Hawks, and the Syrian Marines – imposed full control over Tal SyriaTel after a violent battle with the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) that began this morning.

Tal SyriaTel is an important hilltop that is located near the Palmyra Castle (Qal’at Tadmur); it is also on of the highest points near the ancient city’s western flank.

In addition to their advance at Tal SyriaTel this morning, the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah imposed full control over Jabal Mazar and Jabal Mastouda’at in Palmyra’s northwestern countryside.

Fierce clashes have been reported at both Jabal Qassoun and the Palmyra Orchards this morning, as the Syrian Armed Forces look to break-through ISIS’ defenses and enter this strategic desert city.

Wonderful news. Dear Father, Give great protection and fighting effectiveness to each pro-Assad soldier, fighter and pilot in this advance, and give great direction and strategies to their commanders. Conversely, powerfully come against ISIS and destroy each of them. Give great strength and comfort to the family members and close friends to each martyred soldier and fighter in this strategic advance. In Jesus’ name, Amen
