With ISIS unable to advance in the western Palmyra countryside, the Syrian Arab Army took the initiative this weekend to recapture territory they lost around the strategic T-4 Military Airport.

Led by their 800th Regiment of the Republican Guard, the Syrian Arab Army managed to recover several sites around the outskirts of the T-4 Airport, including the Al Shaarah Hills and checkpoints north of the Abandoned Military Base.

On Sunday night, the Syrian Armed Forces continued their military operations near the T-4 Airport, targeting the ISIS's frontline in the southern part of this installation.

According to a military source in eastern Homs, the Syrian Arab Army's 800th Regiment liberated the Air Defense Base south of the T-4 Airport, killing and wounding a large number of ISIS terrorists in the process.

The Syrian Armed Forces also destroyed 4 technical vehicles, while also seizing a large supply of weapons during their military operations on Sunday.
