A new and significant advance has been just made by the government forces in the eastern countryside of Homs as battles rage to retake the ancient city of Palmyra.

AMN reporter confirmed the recent advance, pointing out that the Syrian Army has imposed full control of the Bayarrat Gharbiyah area, located near the Damascus-Homs highway following heavy battles with the Islamic State.

A few kilometers to the north, the government troops entered the Jihar Gas Fields for the first time in weeks after overrunning the Islamic State’s first line of defense earlier today.
