BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:30 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and Hezbollah continued their march from the ancient city of Palmyra to Deir Ezzor City, Wednesday, targeting the Islamic State’s (ISIL) positions near the Arak Gas Fields.

Backed by Russian airstrikes, the Syrian Army and Hezbollah stormed the 10km area in eastern Homs this morning, inflicting heavy damage on the Islamic State’s defenses.

Unable to maintain ground in the 10km area, the Islamic State ultimately withdrew towards the Al-Hayl Gas Fields in order to avoid increasing their death toll.

The Syrian Arab Army is now attempting to advance at the eastern part of the Arak Gas Fields; this area has been difficult to capture due to ISIL’s stiff defenses.
