Syrian Government Forces Regain Control of ISIS Held Territories

International Military Review - Syria, Sep 24, 2015

In-depth Report:

The Syrian Arab Army, the National Defense Forces and Hezbollah – have quietly advanced in Palmyra’s western countryside as Syrian Air Forces pound the ISIS positions from the air.

Recently, the Syrian government recaptured the Jabal Jazal after ISIS terrorists launched a large-scale assault on their defensive positions at the numerous hilltops and oil fields inside this mountainous region of east Homs. The clashes were going last two weeks there.

After capturing Jabal Jazal, the Syrian Armed Forces are aimed to move in the direction of the city of Palmyra.

On Monday, the Syrian Air Force targeted the ISIS’ positions around the city killing an estimated 40 militants. According to the unconfirmed reports, the Syrian Air Force has become far more effective at this desert front due to the recent arrival of Russian military advisors that provided the Syrian Arab Army’s Central Command with satellite imagery regarding ISIS’ movements around the country.

Meanwhile, continuation of the ongoing US-backed media campaign aimed to prove that Russia is participating in the Syrian war has been continuing.

On September 24, Bloomberg reported that Russia was preparing to launch unilateral airstrikes against the Islamic State from inside Syria if the U.S. rejects his proposal to join forces. Two people close to the Kremlin were named as sources.
