BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:15 A.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has spent a great deal of time this week concentrating attacking the Islamic State’s (ISIS) positions around the ancient city of Palmra.

As a result of this wide-scale assault, the Syrian Arab Army has liberated several sites from the terrorist group, including the strategic Mazar Mountains and Palmyra Gas Fields that are located directly north of the city.

With ISIS retreating at several flanks, the Syrian Arab Army launched another powerful attack this morning that concentrated on the Al-Talilah Crossroad and Al-‘Antar Mountains; these two sites are located at two different flanks.

The Al-Talilah Crossroad is located in the Palmyra’s eastern countryside, while the Al-‘Antar Mountains are situated at the northern flank of the city.

Despite these ongoing attacks, the Syrian Arab Army has managed to expand their buffer-zone around the city, forcing ISIS to withdraw from several points in order to reinforce imperative areas like the ‘Arak Gas Fields and T-3 Pumping Station.

Outflank and threaten so the IS must reinforce further South sounds great. Maybe push them to reinforce Raqqa against the US marines.
Grin.

Well done SAA. Keep the good work (still lots of work to do on that front though)
