BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:00 P.M.) – The so-called “Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham” continued their advance west of the ancient city of Palmyra on Sunday, capturing several sites along the Homs-Palmyra Highway.

ISIS began their westward advance on Sunday afternoon by targeting the groves of Al-Bayarat; this resulted in a fierce battle with the Syrian Armed Forces that ended with the latter’s retreat.

Following the loss of Al-Bayarat, the Islamic State advanced west towards the small village of Al-Dawa, striking the fleeing Syrian Arab Army as they withdraw along the Palmyra-Homs Highway.

According to a military source at the T-4 Airport, the Islamic State is attempting to seize the Abandoned Airbase located north of this installation; if successful, they will be in position to take the airport.

Either you protect Syria, either you deal with USA and Nazisrael.

There is no in between.

Putin try to make both. You can’t fight terrorism when the leader country of counter-terrorism and the most powerful terrorist organization in the world.

What is doing tyhe US-led coalition ? Supporting ISIS.

So, what do you expect.

Putin made the wroing choice to deal with USA just like he did the wrong choice not to provide S-300 to Syria to please Nazisrael.

Putin prefers USA and Nazisrael than Syria.
