The Syrian Army and its allies pushed their way further into militant-held areas in Homs province and came closer in different directions to the key city of Palmyra (Tadmur) in the Eastern part of province, imposing heavy casualties on the terrorists in the region, military sources said on Monday.

The military sources said pro-government forces took dozens of hilltops, from the hill 900 up to hill 700, in heavy clashes with ISIS terrorists.

They also managed to advance further from al-Bayarat to Palmyra Triangle and from Tal al-Matar to al-Dowah and al-Tar Mountain.

The Syrian army also made several advances in rugged areas overlooking the city of Palmyra and liberated areas just across Palmyra's ancient Citadel, Northeast of the city.

Yesterday, the Syrian Army Forces and Hezbollah fighters managed to advance further towards the city of Palmyra (Tadmur) in Homs province, liberating another important mountain-top that overlooks the ancient city’s Western suburbs.

According to a battlefield correspondent embedded with the government forces near Palmyra, the Syrian Army and Hezbollah imposed full control over Jabal Musharraf after a late night battle with the ISIS militants.

The Syrian Army’s Tiger Forces, backed by Hezbollah fighters and other Syrian army's allies, carried out a night assault on ISIS’s lines near Palmyra’s Western suburbs, killing several terrorists and confiscating a large cache of weapons from the terrorist group.

Earlier reports said that Syrian Army forces and their allies were pushing their way to advance further into the Eastern parts of Homs province, and established their control over more areas after fierce clashes with militants in the region; FNA reported.
