BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:50 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continued their large-scale advance in the eastern countryside of Palmyra today, striking the Islamic State’s (ISIS) defenses near the recently liberated Mustadirah Gas Fields.

Backed by heavy Russian airstrikes, the Syrian Arab Army’s 5th Legion pushed further east of the Mustadirah Gas Fields, reaching the strategic Talilah Crossroad that is situated directly south of the ‘Arak Gas Fields.

According to a military source inside of Palmyra City, the Syrian Arab Army is currently clashing with the Islamic State forces at the Talilah Crossroad, while their allies from the Russian Air Force pound the terrorist group’s positions east of this area.

With their recent gains around the Palmyra countryside, the Syrian Arab Army is in position to make an important push towards the strategic town of Al-Sukhanah, which is located along the Homs-Deir Ezzor Highway.

After seizing Arak, it will time to clear all the area north of Palmyra. Nobody in the back ❗

I believe pushing south and liberating the towns and facilities located on Highway 90 to Al Qaryatayn will be a much easier task that will achieve the same purpose. The area between Ithriyah and Palmyra is swarming with Daesh and it’s best to leave that alone for a later time

We have seen this movie before. It does not have a happy ending. Clear your flanks!

THE SAA hasn’t been past Arak in over two years – I’m sure the people of Sukhnah and surrounding villages as well as the workers of the gas and oil facilities will be relieved they no longer have to suffer under Daesh’s nightmare state. Go SAA, push to Deir ez Zor and remember to secure the flanks. Do not allow this front to remain quiet!
