Following a brief hiatus from the Palmyra front, the Syrian Armed Forces are back on the offensive to capture this ancient city located in the Homs Governorate’s eastern countryside.

On Sunday morning, the Syrian Arab Army’s 67th Brigade of the 18th Tank Division – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) and Hezbollah) – conducted a powerful assault on the Palmyra Driving School and the Palmyra Castle, killing over 30 enemy combatants from the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham, while also seizing a large cache of automatic rifles, ammunition, and telecommunication devices.

Three hours into the battle for the Palmyra Driving School and the Palmyra Castle, the Syrian Armed Forces and Hezbollah imposed full control over the aforementioned sites after fierce clashes with the terrorist group.

As a result of their success at the  Palmyra Driving School and the Palmyra Castle, the Syrian Armed Forces are now 3 kilometers west of the ancient city, leaving ISIS in a difficult position at the western flank.

In addition to their success at the western flank of the Palmyra front, the Syrian Armed Forces continued to clash with ISIS at the southeastern perimeter of the Ancient Quarries – the terrorist is attempting to hold their ground due to the Ancient Quarries proximity to Palmyra.

According to a military source in east Homs, a Syrian Arab Army reconnaissance drone captured footage of almost 300 ISIS fighters fleeing east of the ancient city – the source added that the combatants were heading in the direction of Al-Raqqa.
