So far, Tuesday has turned out to be one of the bloodiest days for the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in the battle for the ancient city of Palmyra (Tadmur), as they continue military operations against the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) at this desert front.

The Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” began their assault at the small village of Al-Dawah in western Palmyra, where they were confronted by the same ISIS terrorists they have been combating for the last 3 days.

According to a military source near Palmyra, the Tiger Forces and their allies are inching closer to liberating the village of Al-Dawah, thanks in large part to the Syrian Arab Air Force’s (SAAF) persistent airstrikes on ISIS’ positions.

The source added that the Russian Air Force is also still participating in the battle; this was also reported by the Tiger Forces’ official page on Facebook.

North of Palmyra, the Syrian Arab Army’s 67th Brigade of the 18th Tank Division is reportedly advancing towards the Brigade 550 Base after fierce clashes with ISIS this morning.

Despite their advances, the Syrian Armed Forces have had their share of casualties, including the loss of several military personnel during their military operations in Palmyra today.
