DAMASCUS, SYRIA (6: 15 P.M.) – Fierce clashes broke out since early morning in the stretching desert east of Palmyra as the Syrian troops began a massive offensive aimed at expelling the Islamic State from the gas-rich town of Arak.

Backed by Lebanon’s Hezbollah and Russian Marines, the government forces managed to take over several hilltops overlooking Arak as a prelude to the full ground invasion.

Meanwhile, ISIS reinforcements were hindered as the Russian fighter jets targeted the supply route linking Arak to the group’s bastion of al-Sukhnah.

In the meantime, the Syrian Army is gearing up for another major assault against ISIS in the Aleppo-Hama axis in order to completely secure the supply route to the northern city of Aleppo.
