ISIS Further Retreating Along Homs-Palmyra Highway Under Syrian Army's Pressure

ISIS terrorists are retreating along the Homs-Palmyra highway under the pressure from Syrian government forces.

Local sources say that the terrorist group is now preparing to defend the ancient city of Palmyra from the Syrian army and the National Defense Forces (NDF).

Earlier today, government forces set control over the Hayan gas company and the nearby gas fields.

Now, the army and the NDF are developing an advance in the direction of Bir Mahritan, preparing a push in the direction of Palmyra.

    Good to see some movement by SAA into the gas fields, repair may take a while. Need to expand perimeter N and S of road. SAA is more dependent on supply lines than ISUS.

    Here’s a picture of Trump being informed of ISIS’s retreat from oil fields around Palmyra. He doesn’t look happy his ISIS guys are running away :

      Not so sure Trump owns any of that – he is relative outsider to Pentagon’s/Obama’s/Clinton’s cynical indirect Syrian proxy war, and is now in very public conflict with John Brennan, who was just ousted from CIA top job, and was behind all the CIA’s various Syrian operations in last years.
