BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:35 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continued their large-scale offensive in the northern countryside of Palmyra on Thursday, targeting the mountain chain near the Jazal Gas Fields.

Led by their 5th Legion and 18th Tank Division, the Syrian Arab Army stormed the Al-Bayda’a Mountains at the northeastern axis of the Jazal Gas Fields; this resulted in a series of intense clashes with the Islamic State (ISIL) terrorists.

The Syrian Arab Army would break-through the Islamic State’s defenses this afternoon and impose full control over the Al-Bayda’a Mountains, along with the nearby Mazouar area.

With these sites liberated today, the Syrian Arab Army is making a big push to the Hama Governorate territory that is under the Islamic State’s control.
