Military analysts believe that the army's control over Arak oil field in Northeastern Palmyra (Tadmur) has opened a new door to start and accelerate the operations in the region towards the ISIS's main bastion in Eastern Homs, the town of al-Sukhnah, Palmyra-Deir Ezzur road and then towards breaking the terrorists' siege on Deir Ezzur city and airbase.
Analysts believe that the capture of Arak energy field is strategically important because the Syrian army forces have been able to increase security in Palmyra city despite the fact that hundreds of ISIS terrorists have fled Raqqa towards Palmyra- before the eyes of the US-led coalition forces.
The army's concurrent operations from several pivots in Eastern Palmyra, Western Raqqa, Eastern Aleppo and Eastern Salamiyeh has played a decisive role in cutting the ISIS's supply routes between its bases in Badiyeh (desert) and purging terrorists from thousands of kilometers of the Syrian territories.
The Syrian army troops continued their advances against ISIS in Eastern Homs and recaptured Arak energy field on Thursday, moving towards the strategic town of al-Sukhnah along the main road to the terrorist-held city of Deir Ezzur.
The army soldiers that had earlier taken full control over Arak triangle engaged in heavy fighting with ISIS and pushed them away from Arak oilfield East of the city of Palmyra.
A large number of ISIS terrorists, including non-Syrians, were killed and their military hardware were damaged in the attack.
A military source announced that after taking control over Arak energy field the army soldiers are to move towards al-Sukhnah that is the last ISIS base in Homs province and a gate to Deir Ezzur province.
