ISIS has begun withdrawing from the western countryside of Palmyra after suffering a significant number of casualties near the T-4 Military Airport.
A reconnaissance drone provided SAA with images regarding ISIS gathering point near the T-4 Pumping Station.
Using heavy artillery, SAA scored several direct hits on ISIS gathering points, killing more than 40 enemy combatants and destroying as many as 5 pick-up trucks and 3 armored vehicles, including 2 BMP tanks.
As a result of these losses, ISIS has reportedly begun withdrawing their forces to the Al-Raqqa countryside, where their combatants are currently engaged in a fierce battle with the Kurdish-led “Syrian Democratic Forces” (SDF).
In the coming days, the Syrian Arab Army will launch a massive counter-attack to recapture much of Palmyra’s western countryside, forcing the Islamic State terrorists to concede much of the important gas fields.
