On Saturday afternoon in the eastern countryside of the Homs Governorate, the Syrian Arab Army’s “Tiger Forces” – backed by the Desert Hawks, 134th Brigade, Hezbollah, and the Syrian Marines – liberated the important hilltop located directly east of the recently captured Al-‘Amariyah District.
The imperative hilltop was identified by the Tiger Forces’ media wing as “Tal Sukri” or “Tal ‘Amariyah’; regardless, it is an important component to the Syrian Arab Army’s military strategy to seizing the ancient city from the Islamic State or Iraq and Al-Sham.
In addition to liberating this hilltop, the Syrian Armed Forces were able to once again capture several points along the Raqqa-Palmyra Highway, leaving the terrorist group without a primary supply route to Palmyra City.
However, the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies did not stop there; instead, they would recapture the Al-Badiyah and-Djami’ia Al-Ghabiyah districts after a fierce battle with the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham.
Currently, the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies are pushing deep into the heart of Palmyra, killing a significant number of enemy combatants while also attempting to capture the strategic Palmyra Airport.
