Syrian army advancing to liberate Qaryatayn town

Syrian army advancing to liberate Qaryatayn town

The Syrian army presses on with an offensive to push Daesh out of yet another central town after seizing the ancient city of Palmyra.
The UK-based monitoring group known as the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says the government forces backed by Russian warplanes are advancing towards the Daesh-held town of Qaryatayn. According to the observatory, the Syrian army has already captured a series of strategic hilltops overlooking the town. Qaryatayn lies on a key road linking Palmyra to the Qalamun region in Damascus province. Daesh captured the town in August 2015. The terrorist group has kidnapped hundreds of people, including Christians, and destroyed a historic monastery in the town.
