A VERY HAPPY EASTER !!! ALSO PALMYRA RESIDENTIAL CITY HAS BEEN TOTALLY LIBERATED: NOW IT’S UP TO RAQQA
After the historical Palmyra, also the residential Palmyra city has been liberated today by the Special Units of the Syrian Armed Forces, in joint operations with Hezbollah, the Iranian brigades, with aerial coverage by the Rusian Air Forces.
“Palmyra city is now fully cleared of Daesh (ISIS, ISIL, IS) terrorists after the army established complete control over all its parts, including the archeological site and the airport,” the source said in a statement.
The army’s engineering units have immediately embarked on combing the city, finding and dismantling hundreds of bombs and explosive devices planted by Daesh mercenary-terrorists between the ancient relics, houses and orchards, the source mentioned.
Army Command praises Palmyra victory, stresses that the Syrian Arab Army, with Popular Special Unit Forces and its Allies (Hezbollah, Iranian Brigades, Russian Air Forces) are the only forces capable of eradicating terrorism in the Middle East area, for the benefit of the whole world.
With Palmyra city under control, military operations against Daesh will expand starting from this springboard towards various axes and directions, on top being Deir Ezzor and Raqqa, especially that this victory helps in further tightening the noose around Daesh terrorists and cutting off their supply routes in the areas under their control until having these areas fully restored, the statement explained.
