Syrian Forces Intensify Attacks on ISIL Positions near Palmyra
TEHRAN (FNA)- The Syrian Army, popular forces and Hezbollah fighters have launched a fresh round of operations against the ISIL defense lines around the ancient city of Palmyra (Tadmur) in the Central province of Homs on Sunday, battlefield sources said.

“The ISIL fortified positions in al-Tarr mountain, South of Aloun Farm and at the Western entrance of Palmyra city were massively attacked by the Syrian government forces,” the sources said.

 

 

“The Syrian forces’ operations have left dozes of the ISIL militants dead or wounded and have partly destroyed their sites,” the sources further added.

Sources said earlier today that the Syrian government troops fended off Takfiri terrorists’ attack on their positions in the direction of Wadi Abyad dam, West of Palmyra.

The terrorists who had launched an attack from al-Hayyal mountain suffered a heavy death toll after the Syrian army and the country’s National Defense Forces (NDF) thwarted their attack near Palmyra and pushed them back from the battlefield in a counter-attack.

The ISIL concentration centers, three vehicles and a machinegun-equipped car were also destroyed by the Syrian army and its allies.

In another development in the same province, the Syrian army also thwarted an attack by the ISIL on military points in the surroundings of Maheen and Hawareen villages, killing and injuring many terrorists and destroying their weapons and munitions.

The government forces have deployed a large number of fresh forces, including the army men, NDF and Hezbollah fighters in different directions of Palmyra and are waiting for the imminent conquest of Quaryatayn and Maheen regions to launch a large-scale operation to end the control of the ISIL over Palmyra.

Earlier, army said that the Western territories of Palmyra were the scenes of fierce clashes between the ISIL terrorists and the Syrian government forces, leaving many of the militants dead or wounded.

The Syrian army and its allies are resolved to push back the ISIL from Homs province, specially from Palmyra which is a treasure of historic monuments.

The Syrian Army announced on Saturday that its forces, Hezbollah and the NDF were advancing rapidly against the ISIL near Palmyra and were only 2 km to the city gates and 400 meters to the Palmyra Castle.

“The Syrian government forces’ operation was so heavy that the ISIL terrorists left behind their military hardware and retreated form the battlefield,” the army announced.

“The Syrian army and its allies have deployed forces only 400 meters away form the historical Palmyra Castle,” the army said.

“The militant groups’ military camps in the Northern part of the coastal province of Lattakia were also bombed by the Russian and Syrian warplanes,” the sources added.

The Russian fighter jets joined war on terrorism in Syria on September 30.

The Russian warplanes have played very crucial role in the Syrian ground forces in the recent two and a half months.

Head of Russian Long Range Aviation Anatoly Konovalov said on Saturday that his forces have carried out 145 sorties against ISIL targets in Syria since the operation began.

Russia’s air force has also fired about 20 cruise missiles on terrorist assets.

“We’ve carried out about 145 sorties in total; dropped over 1,500 bombs and fired about 20 air-launched cruise missiles,” Konovalov said.

The Russian air force has armed its Tu-95MS heavy bombers with its latest Raduga Kh-101 air-launched cruise missile, which made its combat debut in Syria over the past two months as well.

Unlike their Western analogues, the Russian cruise missiles, even those developed years ago, are all supersonic all, which means that they are able to penetrate the enemy’s missile defenses.

Since September 30, Russia has been conducting an aerial campaign in Syria against the ISIL Takfiri terrorist group following a request from President Bashar al-Assad.
