BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:30 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) resumed their military operations in the Palmyra countryside today, striking the Islamic State (ISIS) forces northeast of this ancient desert city.

Led by the 5th Legion, the Syrian Arab Army stormed the Mustadirah Mountains in northeastern Palmyra, where they were confronted by a large group of Islamic State terrorists on Tuesday morning.

Intense clashes would last for most of the day on Tuesday, until the Syrian Arab Army finally broke-through the Islamic State’s defenses after fighting uphill for several hours.

The Syrian Arab Army took full control of the Mustadirah Mountains by 7:45 P.M. (Damascus Time), killing and wounding several Islamic State terrorists en route to securing Palmyra’s northeastern flank.
