The SAA continue to grab more territories east of the ancient city of Palmyra as part of a large-scale offensive to reach the embattled city of Deir Ezzor.

Backed by heavy Russian aerial bombardment, the government forces almost regained full control of al Hail gas field located some 14 km to the east of the strategic Arak area, thus reducing the distance to the ISIS-controlled al Sukhnah to 20 km.

Al Sukhna, located deep in the Syrian Desert, serves as the terror group’s major bastion en route to the eastern city of Deir Ezzor.
