Syrian government forces are fighting 3,5 km from historical parts of Palmyra (Tadmor) for heights from the western and eastern sides of the city, reports RIA News.


Syrian troops break through to the historical part of Palmyra


Earlier, some publications reported that the Syrian army has already entered the historical part of the city.

“On Wednesday, forward detachments of government troops were able to establish control over the dominant 939,5 height in the mountain range of Hiyan, southeast of Palmyra. On the west side, fighters from the Tiger division of Colonel Suhayl Al-Hassan are breaking through to the ancient city. The forward detachments of the army and militia are trying to seize the heights in the west of Palmyra in order to cut off the main supply route of the Islamic State terrorist group ", - An agency correspondent reports from the scene.

According to him, "IG terrorists make daily attempts to counterattack government troops and suffer losses."

The advancing forces are moving slowly. Militants have a desperate resistance, using heavy weapons and hiding in underground tunnels. A strong storm that lasts for the second day is not conducive to advancement.

    They will succeed, I believe. In addition to military assistance, the main thing that we did was instill confidence

      In my opinion, our military advisers today play a huge role in Syria.

        Victory to the Syrians! No one did not say that it is easy to defend your homeland. But besides you, the Syrians will not do it. We helped and will help.

        Assad also got help from Night Hunters and Alligators, who on a moonless night can mow the remaining militants.

      Each has its own Stalingrad, when you need to win even with your teeth. Syria must now win, because the consequences of the defeat will be terrible. Chop, like the last time, men.

        Have you seen at least once when the Arabs chopped down, gnawed their teeth ???? I think that our guys are directly involved .. For example, the special unit "Tiger", it seems to be everywhere .. both in Aleppo (and this is a large area), and in Damascus , and in Palmyra and almost at the devil's horns .. Yes, this is hardly possible, it will be a diffusion of forces .. It's like joke about the Vietnamese ace Li Si Tsin ..

          The Syrians have their families behind. They can only be defeated.

      Wow, now they are winged. They will go as we once did to Stalingrad. Most importantly, confidence came to them that they will succeed and that they have allies.

      There are already videos on the Internet showing how our helicopters are handling altitude "900" near Palmyra. But there is also bad news. In Syria, a fifth Russian serviceman, previously one of the military advisers, was killed. Eternal memory to him!

        This info is filed by the bearded. The RF Ministry of Defense does not confirm this fact. So for now there is no clarity on this issue.

    it is of course when wood chips are flying, but it’s all the same Palmyra, if possible, it is necessary to preserve what is still left. It’s hard to beat such cities

      So the bombs really dug in there, dug tunnels. In the recent "War", Poddubny and the group were almost surrounded and blown up.

      It was there on the hills near Palmyra that the IG showed the sensational photo and video of the MTR operator.

      However, something big is being prepared in Iraq now. Even the school teacher was pardoned after GIVING A SHAWARMA ON A CAMERA, and he again mounted on Abrams with the Imam Ali Brigade.

      In 1 photo the fallen fighter of the Syrian special forces (according to my Syria), on 2 whose head it is, and on 3 collective photo xs on the background of a birch.
      Yes, this is quite enough for people like you to throw excrement on the fan.

      Well, post another video here with cutting heads with hohlosubtitri that it is Russian, and ask the question that there is such information.

    So maybe we videoconferencing during the storm and brought.
    That would not over wear the technique.
    And the planes were replaced with other things,
    which can work in such conditions.
    In general, of course, good luck to the Assad fighters.

    The stubborn resistance of demons should only increase skill and anger among ATS soldiers. An unconditional victory should be not only technical, but also moral for many years ... The healthy Syrian men who strike for free in Europe are astonished ... instead of defending the homeland to the militia.

    In general, Stalingrad was defended, not "attacked"
