On Sunday morning, the so-called “Islamic State of Iraq and Syria” (ISIS) launched another powerful assault on Syrian Arab Army’s defensive positions inside the ancient city of Palmyra (Tadmor).

Last night Al-Masdar News reported that according to some sources, the SAA managed to recapture Jabal Tar mountain which overlooks the city from the north. This proved to be untrue, otherwise ISIS terrorists would not have been able to launch another attack on northern axis this morning.

According to a military source in Palmyra, the terror group was once again able to capture Al-Amariyah district, its hilltop of the same name and Officers Housing complex. This, along with enemy’s control over Palmyra Grain Silos area, makes it quite difficult for the government troops to hold their positions in the city as ISIS now maintains fire control over it.

So far, there are no reports about government troops’ retreat from the city. However, considering the situation, it is very likely to happen in the coming hours.

But this has not served the purpose of easing on Aleppo. Once Aleppo is wiped clean, all forces will crash on these Daeshbags ;D like a sledgehammer

Pathetic. So much for the heavy losses imposed on them! I do hate propaganda; I don’t like reading LIES. Took them weeks to take it and days to lose it, Syrians; got no resolve.

There are reports of Tu-22M3 having been used.
X-fingers for the roaches to be crushed the way they deserve to be.
