"And I have found both freedom and safety in my madness, the freedom of loneliness and the safety from being understood, for those who understand us enslave something in us. But let me not be too proud of my safety. Even a Thief in a jail is safe from another thief. "

Khalil Gibran (How I Became a Madman)

Hundreds of Syrian Army soldiers pour into Palmyra for new offensive- Al-Masdar News

BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:55 A.M.) – Hundreds of soldiers from the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) arrived in the Palmyra countryside yesterday, a military source told Al-Masdar News this morning.

The soldiers were reportedly deployed from the coastal provinces of Tartous and Latakia to the Palmyra front, where they are expected to aid the 5th Legion in a new military operation around this ancient desert city.

While details of this military operation were not given, it is very likely that the Syrian Arab Army will push east of Palmyra towards the strategic town of Al-Sukhnah.

Al-Sukhnah is a strategic town located along the main highway to the Deir Ezzor Governorate; if captured, it will allow the Syrian Arab Army to possibly end the two year long siege on the province.
