The Syrian army and the National Defense Forces (NDF), supported by the Russian and Syrian airpower, continue their push in the direction of the ancient city of Palmyra controlled by the ISIS terrorist group.
Main clashes are now ongoing in the areas of the Jihar and Jazal fields near the Hayan facility recently liberated by government forces. If these fields are liberated, the army and the NDF will be able to develop an advance further.
Reports say that a high number of Russian attack helicopters participate in the operation.
