Syrian army repels massive Daesh attack on T4 base near Palmyra

Syrian army units and loyal militias stationed at the Tiyas T4 airbase to the west of Palmyra have repelled a massive attack by Daesh militants, a militia source said Saturday.

On Monday, Palmyra was recaptured by Daesh months after being liberated by Syrian forces. Daesh pushed the Syrian army out and forced units to regroup at the Tiyas T4 airbase dozens of miles westward from the ancient city. The base is now the main stronghold between Daesh territory and Homs.

"The army and the militia have repelled a massive Daesh attack on the T4 airbase. The attack came from the southwest and the enemy retreated," the source said, Sputnik reports.

The base continues to be targeted by regular mortar and rocket attacks, the source added, noting that Daesh is currently several miles away from T4 in all directions except the southwest, where terrorists were able to approach to within two miles of the base.
