Minutes ago in the Homs Governorate’s eastern countryside, the Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” – backed by the Desert Hawks, Hezbollah, and the Syrian Marines – imposed full control over the western slopes of Jabal Al-Tar after a violent battle with the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) near the city of Palmyra (Tadmur).

According to an Al-Masdar field correspondent, the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah infiltrated ISIS’ defenses at the western slopes of Jabal Al-Tar, forcing them to reinforce the eastern part of this important mountaintop that is situated in Palmyra’s western countryside.

If they capture Jabal Al-Tar from the ISIS terrorists, they will be able to complete the encirclement of Al-Dawah, while also having a presence near the Palmyra Castle.

In addition to liberating the western slopes of Jabal Al-Tar, the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah also captured the Palmyra Fuel Station that is located at the southwestern perimeter of the Palmyra Orchards.

With the Palmyra Fuel Station under their control, the Syrian Armed Forces are now within 2.0 km of the Palmyra Orchards that lead into this ancient desert city.
