DAMASCUS, SYRIA (5:05 P.M.) – The Russian-trained 5th Legion continue its push to the east of the desert city of Palmyra amid jihadi collapse.

The Syrian forces, backed by Russian airstrikes, managed to day to restore Marbat Antar mountain – located 12 km to the northwest of Palmyra –  and the surrounding points, as well as Al-Hid and Al-Dhalil mountains to the north of the strategic Hayyan gas field.

Severe battles reported to have taken place around the newly-captured locations whereby ISIS suffered heavy losses both in fighters and military equipment.

ISIS has been suffering major blows in Syria recently, with the Syrian government troops re-take more territories from the terror group in west Aleppo countryside.

In the Syrian desert, Syrian rebels ousted ISIS from large swathes on land after weeks-long clashes with several reel groups.

Yesterday, the Syrian Army, backed by local forces, launched a massive assault against ISIS in the northeast countryside of Suweida, recapturing several villages.

With the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces threatening ISIS de-facto capital of al-Qaqqa, the group is increasingly withdrawing its fighters to defend their bastion against a potential attack.

IS has definitely a loosing streak. Which is a great step in the war against terrors.

The SAA is retaking the oil and gas fields of Palmyra. Which further strengthens their economic position and consolidates terrain for future advances.

But other participants also rush for the spoils. Which is good for the war on IS but not so good for the upcoming peace negotiations.
