BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:10 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) and their allies from the Russian Marines resumed their offensive in the Quraytayn countryside, Thursday, targeting the Islamic State’s last positions before the ancient city.

Led by the 5th Legion, the Syrian Arab Army stormed Jabal Al-Marmaleh, which is a mountain chain overlooking Quraytayn from its northern axis.

The Syrian Army and their allies would establish full control over Jabal Al-Marmaleh this morning after overrunning the Islamic State’s front-lines at this mountain chain.

With Jabal Al-Marmaleh now liberated, the Syrian Arab Army has imposed fire control over Quraytayn’s northern districts.

The Syrian Army is working to pressure the Islamic State terrorists inside Quraytayn to accept an evacuation deal that will avoid their forces having to storm the city itself.
