The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) has made significant progress in the western countryside of Palmyra today, liberating several points from the Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists attempting fend off the government advance.
Led by the 5th Legion and 18th Tank Division, the Syrian Arab Army managed to liberate Jabal Al-Tar, Jabal Hiyal, and the Palmyra Triangle, killing and wounding a large number of Islamic State terrorists as they reached the gates of this ancient city.
Video footage of the Syrian Arab Army’s advance was captured by Hezbollah’s media wing on Wednesday, showing recently liberated areas and live combat between the government forces and Islamic State terrorists.
In the coming hours, the Syrian Arab Army will likely enter the ancient city and attempt to expel the remaining terrorists inside Palmyra.
