DAMASCUS, SYRIA (6: 50 P.M.) – Government forces resume a wide-scale military operation in east Palmyra aimed to oust the Islamic State from the Syrian desert and recapture the gas-rich area.

The offensive was momentarily called off after several Army troops were gunned down by ISIS fighters near the Talilah crossroad.

The resumed assault was further boosted by the Russian attack helicopters which conducted several effective airstrikes against ISIS positions in Talilah, T3 Airbase andArak areas.

Meanwhile, the Islamic State posted a photo of a Syrian soldier captured alive during the failed offensive yesterday.
