Government forces in the eastern suburbs of Palmyra eliminated 70 militants


“The Sokolov Desert fighters, with the support of artillery and Syrian air forces, completely took control of the Khaya mountain range (4 kilometer from Palmyra) and took under their fire a strategic intersection on the Palmyra-Damascus – Deir ez-Zor route,” a source in headquarters operations.

According to the correspondent of the publication, located on the scene, "groups of Arab tribes fighting on the side of the Syrian army were able to move forward and cut off a section of the government road Damascus - Palmyra in 6 kilometers from the ancient city", thereby completely blocking the supply path of militants from the city of Qaryatein .

“Terrorists today tried to launch a counterattack to the heights of the Haya ridge. Thanks to the artillery, most of the militants were eliminated, ”the militia commander Haissam said.

Militants of the IG continue to provide fierce resistance. The forward positions of government forces are under constant mortar fire.

        Not so soon it will be, unfortunately.
        A few days ago we already discussed when someone squeezed a bravura article with "ready to go to the outskirts of the city even now."
        There are still many butts to come, and street fights are still ahead.
        The outcome of the battle is clear, but the question is losses and timing.

        While we are here a little happy, just arrived new news on this topic.
        The Syrian government army with the help of small arms took control of the historical part of the ancient city of Palmyra (Tadmor). The Brigadier General told the agency Sputnik about this, RIA Novosti reports.

      Dushmans have nothing to lose, they desperately resist. But the Syrians are on the rise. Liberators all the same.

        Counterattacks must now be sustained. It’s hard, but it’s harder to storm again. Must be kept, even standing on the corpses.

      Over the past 24 hours during the fighting, about 70 of the terrorists of the Islamic State have been destroyed, RIA Novosti reports.

      And it should be noted that they were not supposed as Americans in Yemen, but real Basmachis! Well done!

    It seems to me that our advisers are trying there, the coverage strategy is painfully familiar

    There is no doubt. The Syrians began to work somewhat differently both on earth and in the sky. The impression is that in the planning of operations, ours are exactly nearby.

    They are beaten, beaten, and they all climb out of all the cracks. If you block the main gap - the border with Turkey, then probably the Syrian army with the allies would be easier.

    Well done, the Syrians, led by Bashar al-Assad, are gradually and systematically destroying these thugs. Of course, I would like it to happen sooner, cleansing Syria of this muck, but everything has its own time. and Tranquility. When did the throats of this insatiable USA, at the head of the financial-Zionist oligarchy, finally shut up.

    Yes, that’s exactly what is visible. The battles are going on, the battles are heavy, but they still achieve beard, and thanks to our help, Syria has a good chance to remain a united state with the right president.
