According to a trusted military source in Damascus, the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) – alongside Liwaa Al-Fatemiyoun (Afghani paramilitary) – arrived to Hill 900 in the Palmyra (Tadmur) countryside on Sunday as part of the final wave of reinforcements to help liberate this ancient desert city.

The IRGC and Liwaa Al-Fatemiyoun contingent was not as large as the brigade from the Syrian Marines that arrived to the Palmyra countryside last week; however, they are an important component in the military strategy to defeat the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) across the country.

The source did not mention whether or not the IRGC was planning on participating in the actual battle to liberate the city; it is very likely that they will be advising the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies from afar.

Interesting enough, as the Syrian Armed Forces kick-off their massive desert offensive in eastern Syria, the Iraqi Army has begun a large-scale operation to liberate the Al-‘Anbar Governorate from the ISIS terrorists inhabiting a substantial portion of it.

The timing of these offensives is rather important because ISIS is currently being attacked from two different flanks in two different countries.

Since the Iranians are advising both armies; it would not be out of the realm of possibility that they coordinated this coincidental military operation against ISIS in both Iraq and Syria.
