It is reported by a twitter account named Heba that the Syrian Arab Army’s Tiger Forces and allies with the aerial help of the Russian Aerospace Defense Forces advance towards the center of Palmyra.
Yesterday, the Syrian forces and their allies imposed full control over the western slopes of Jabal Al-Tar after a violent battle with the Islamic State terrorists.
After winning Jabal Al-Tar the Syrian forces advances are ongoing in 3 directions: from the Palmyra triangle through the fuel station to Orchards of Palmyra, from Ancient Quarries in direction of Palmyra gas field in order to flank ISIS terrorists concentrated in the city from Al-Bayaral Marhatter to Jabal Al-Tar and Al Dawah.
Since May 2015, Palmyra, a historic Syrian city, which is also a UNESCO World Heritage site, has been under control of ISIS terrorists.
The agreement was negotiated by Russia and the United States. Many suggest that Washington is among the main supporters of terrorists fighting against the Syrian government forces.
On Wednesday, it was reported that the Syrian Arab Air Force launched several strikes on ISIS positions in the Deir Ezzor Governorate.
Today, another twitter account named Emmanuel reports that the Syrian forces have been achieving major victories in the battles of Homs province against the terrorists. Three strategic villages of Al-Dawah, Jabal al-Tar and Qatari villa were liberated by the Syrian army.
Nevertheless, the Arab country is currently observing an agreement for the cessation of hostilities which entered into force on February 27. The agreement stipulates the cessation of all military hostilities in Syria, except for the operations against ISIS terrorist group and al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front militants.
