BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:30 P.M.) – The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continued their field operations against the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) in central Syria on Saturday.

Led by their 3rd and 11th divisions, the Syrian Arab Army attacked several areas with an Islamic State presence in the Badiya Al-Sham region near the ancient city of Palmyra (var. Tadmur).

According to a field report from this front, the Syrian Arab Army engaged in heavy clashes with the Islamic State on Saturday, resulting in a number of casualties for the terrorist group.

A significant portion of the Islamic State’s equipment southeast of Palmyra was reportedly destroyed during the operation.

The Syrian Arab Army reportedly destroyed several mortar launchers, missile-launchers, RPGs, and machine guns that belonged to the terrorist group in the area.

“sureste de Palmira” figura como zona liberada, pero vemos que existe grupos de ISIS en este territorio. También queda un amplio zona desértica de Badiya Al Sham.
