DAMASCUS, SYRIA (1: 45 P.M.) – The Syrian Army troops continue to grab more territories east of the ancient city of Palmyra as part of a large-scale offensive to reach the embattled city of Deir Ezzor.

Backed by paramilitary fighters and heavy Russian aerial bombardment, the government forces almost regained full control of al-Hail gas field located some 14 km to the east of the strategic Arak area, thus reducing the distance to the Islamic State-controlled al-Sukhnah to 20 km.

Al-Sukhna, located deep in the Syrian Desert, serves as the terror group’s major bastion en route to the eastern city of Deir Ezzor; the Syrian Army’s ultimate objective at this battlefront.

Meanwhile, the Army troops expanded its control around the T3 pumping station by securing 7 km of land to the east.

Syrian and Russian Air Forces have proved pivotal in this specific battlefront as they conducted effective and non-stop airstrikes against ISIS positions and convoys.

The shootdown of a SyAF plane bogged down the offensive from Raqqa.
Maybe switch forces, send TF to Palmyra now and let them deal with Sukhnah.
