The Syrian army forces started advancing in the Central city of Palmyra (Tadmur) on Wednesday, retaking control of a strategic hill, Al-Alam News Network reports.

According to Al-Alam TV correspondent in Syria on Wednesday, the Syrian army units have taken an area 11km in depth and 18km in width in Tadmur city (Palmyra) in Homs province.

The security forces also regained control of the strategic al-Marmaleh hill near al-Bayarat district.

Also on Tuesday, Syrian Kurdish fighters took more than 10 villages North of Raqqa city from the ISIL terrorists.

At least 78 ISIL terrorists were killed since Sunday night, the so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported.

But, on Tuesday, the terrorist group was still in control of Ain Issa, the Britain-based Observatory said. The town, 50 km (30 miles) North of Raqqa city, was seized by ISIL terrorists from the Kurdish YPG forces in an attack on Monday.

The Observatory said YPG forces regained control of 11 villages Northeast of Ain Issa.

The YPG has made significant gains against ISIL in Raqqa province in recent weeks, seizing Tel Abyad at the Turkish border on June 15 before advancing South to Ain Issa.

The YPG captured Ain Issa on June 23.
