DAMASCUS, SYRIA (0:30 P.M.) – The Islamic State’s days in central Syria appear to be numbered as the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) captured some 3,000 square kilometers in barely 48 hours, thus reconnecting all roads between the ancient cities of Palmyra and Damascus.

Below, the SAA can be seen liberating the desert town of Al-Buseerah, located southwest of Palmyra. The footage was released by the official SAA media wing:

With large ISIS convoys retreating from the Homs region en route to Raqqa upon word of SAA advances, these jihadist vehicles were hunted down by Syrian and Russian warplanes with the entire ordeal recorded on camera.

ISIS is now gearing up for the looming battle of Raqqa while the SAA seems keen to grab poorly defended jihadist territory in the rest of Homs province.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
