The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) with allied support made gains against so-called Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIS/ISIL) in eastern Homs near Palmyra.
The Syrian Armed forces captured the areas of Al-‘Alb, Bi’r Dahlon and Sharat Dahlon after an intense battle with the Islamic State militants.
Local journalists reported that the Islamic State forces in the Palmyra countryside sustained tens of casualties as a result of the government offensive.
With ISIL retreating from several areas, the Syrian Arab Army has taken the opportunity to advance towards the strategic ‘Ark Gas Fields located east of Palmyra.
