The Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces – backed by the Desert Hawks, Hezbollah, and Syrian Marines – launched a night invasion at the western outskirts of Palmyra (Tadmur), targeting the strategic Semiramis Hotel that is currently under the control of the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS).

According to an Al-Masdar field correspondent, the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah are currently 70 meters away from the southwestern perimeter of the Semiramis Hotel.

Similar to the Qatari Royal Villa, the Semiramis Hotel has been turned into a well-fortified military installation for ISIS; it is also used as the aforementioned terrorist group’s barracks.

If the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah are successful in liberating the Semiramis Hotel from the ISIS terrorists, they will be in position to enter the Palmyra Orchards for the first time since their large-scale retreat from this ancient city on May 21st, 2015.

While the Syrian Armed Forces focus on the Semiramis Hotel, the Russian Air Force is blitzing ISIS’ supply route that leads to the nearby town of Al-Sukhanah.

The Russian Air Force has already carried out 20+ airstrikes tonight; this number is likely to skyrocket in the coming hours as the battle intensifies.
