Russian Warplanes Bombing ISIL Defense Lines near Syria’s Palmyra
TEHRAN (FNA)- The Russian strikers have been pounding the defense lines of the ISIL terrorist group around Palmyra (Tadmur) since Tuesday morning in preparation for a large-scale attack to take back the ancient city.

Early reports said the ISIL terrorists have sustained a heavy death toll in the Russian airstrikes on their positions in the surrounding areas of Palmyra in the Central Homs province.


 Damage assessment reports said the militant sites’ infrastructure suffered heavy damage in the air raids.

On Friday, the Syrian army thwarted large-scale attacks by the ISIL Takfiri terrorists in Palmyra.

The Syrian army reportedly killed and injured scores of terrorists.

Reports said on November 24 that the Syrian Army, National Defense Forces and Hezbollah have advanced against the ISIL militants near al-Hayyal and have deployed their units in the Southern side of Palmyra, adding that pro-government forces were readying to launch the final attack on the city from three directions.

In addition to their advance at Al-Hayyal, the Syrian Armed Forces and their allies captured more territory along the Homs-Deir Ezzur Highway that leads to Palmyra’s Western side; this paved the way for them to push towards the Qatari Royal Family’s villa that is now used by the ISIL as a training base for their new recruits.

With their recent success on the Southern and Western flanks of Palmyra, the Syrian Armed Forces are now in a position to attack this ancient desert city from three different sides, while the Russian Air Force strikes the Palmyra Military Airport and the road leading to the East district.
