DAMASCUS, SYRIA (6:50 P.M.) – On Friday, Syrian Arab Army (SAA) backed by Russian Air Force continued offensive against the so-called “Islamic State” (IS, or also ISIL/ISIS) in eastern Palmyra countryside.

Led by 5th Army Corps units, government forces captured Talilah crossroads and its surroundings east of Palmyra after violent clashes with IS jihadists.

Having entire Talilah area under control, SAA is now in position to begin advancing towards T3 Pumping Station and Arak town.

Imposing control over those two sites will allow SAA to establish new defense line and position itself to start an operation to liberate strategic town of Sukhnah.

The SAA had been fighting for that crossroad for well over a month. I guess ISIS was holding that position as long as possible so their units to the west could make their out toward Mayadin and Deir Azzor. Now the SAA can motor down to T2 and say Howdy to the US/FSA units that took it earlier and surrounded the T2 airbase on three sides. I was surprised to learn about the Talilah Nature Reserve. I presume it contains the flora and fauna that used to be widespread across that region before man ruined it by overgrazing. Now that… Read more »

I’ve decided, I’m going to start a petition, for Masdar to bring back the right click, so we can open multiple tabs OF THEIR WORK again, because they removed it, brought it back for a day and it’s been gone again ever since.

A media site should not be preventing their audience from easily accessing their work, it’s a grave injustice and needs to be fixed, as it should have been long ago.

Get a life. Surely you have more important things to worry about. I am sure AlMasdar News does , when one considers the malign actions of US hackers toward the site.

It was a joke. The fact that you took it serious shows that you have no sense of humour, that you ironically need to get a life.

Go Israel, down with the terrorists Hamas and the PA (who pay people to kill Israelis, even civilians).
