Information resource AMN writes that air strikes allowed the ground forces of the SAR on the positions of the Ishilovites at the moment when they tried to regroup to establish defense. The militants were not allowed to regroup. Tank attacks crushed the enemy’s defenses. As a result of the operation, several dozen Igilovites were liquidated, the rest fled to the east, scattering into small groups of 2-3 terrorists, so as not to become easy prey for the military aviation.
Recall that on the eve of the Syrian troops took control of strategic important heights (hills) near Palmyra, which allows you to view the territory for many kilometers and deliver effective strikes on positions Igilovtsev.
After the liberation of the Haiyan territory, the Syrian military discovered that the terrorists destroyed quite a few gas installations before the advance of the SAR forces.
The command of the armed forces of the SAR reports that the offensive continues. Substantial forces are operating in the area of Al-Bayarat, located approximately 38 km from the historical center of Palmyra. It was here that the militants decided to create a semblance of a fortified area to confront the advancing forces of the Syrian government army.
