Syrian Arab Army establishes full control over Palmyra Triangle area
Syrian Army units operating in the eastern countryside of Homs province established full control over the Palmyra Triangle area on the western outskirts of Palmyra city after eliminating the last gatherings of Daesh (ISIS, ISIL, IS…) mercenary-terrorists in the area.
Local reporters for the Syrian National Agency said that Syrian Army units, in coordination with the supporting forces, engaged on Wednesday in fierce clashes with Daesh members located in Palmyra Triangle area, leaving scores of the terrorist dead or injured, adding that army units are chasing down the remaining terrorists in the area who are suffering great demoralization.
The reporter said that Syrian Army units are advancing in the direction of Palmyra Citadel, while engineering units are canvassing the Triangle area and dismantling IEDs (Improvised Explosive Devices) and landmines left behind by terrorists to impede the army’s progress.
The Syrian Army at the moment does not have any forces stationed in the citadel, as it is filled with improvised explosive devices, but it is under their control

The army is now storming a hotel district in the southwestern part of Palmyra, RIA Novosti reports, citing a source.
