DAMASCUS, SYRIA (10:15 P.M.) – Amid intense battles on the outskirts of Palmyra, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) neutralized a notorious jihadist commander who was featured by Islamic State outlets destroying ancient UNESCO sites back in 2015 when the terror group overran the ancient city.

Meanwhile, the SAA also blew up another ISIS suicide bomber east of the Palmyra Silos.

On the Palmyra battlefield, Syrian government forces retook control of the Mazal mountain, Al-Hari Castle and Palmyra Gas Fields on Thursday.

Minutes after Al-Masdar News published this story, Amaq Agency confirmed the alleged death of Abu Hamid Al-Sukhni:

Consolidation of the SAA gains to protect their ever increasing supply lines, together with the advance of the SAA ‘spear’ formations will be challenging for the SAA. Especially during the Sand Storm Season that ISIS has exploited before.

It would be wonderful though to see the siege of Deir Ezzor lifted.

What dirty tricks will the US military used to funnel more of their pet ISIS rats toward Deir Ezzor?
