The Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” – backed by the Desert Hawks Brigade and Liwaa Imam Ali (Iraqi paramilitary) – launched a powerful assault on the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham’s (ISIS) defensive positions at the strategic hills surrounding the ancient desert city of Palmyra (Tadmur) this morning.

According to preliminary reports from the Syrian Armed Forces in east Homs, the Tiger Forces and their allies have advanced towards Point 700 after a violent battle with the ISIS terrorists in the vicinity of Jabal Hayyal.

The source added that the Syrian Armed Forces have already liberated several small hilltops en route to Point 700; however, they still do not control this important site that is located 500 meters away from the Qatari Royal Villa.

Once Point 700 is captured by the Syrian Armed Forces, they will finally have a presence along the main road that leads to the Qatari Royal Villa and the Palmyra Orchards that are situated at the southern perimeter of this ancient desert city.

Clashes have also been reported in the northern countryside of Palmyra, where the Syrian Arab Army’s 67th Brigade of the 18th Tank Division and the National Defense Forces (NDF) are attempting to recapture the imperative Brigade 550 Base that overlooks the Al-‘Amariyah District and Jabal Al-‘Asafeer.
