By 13 December, after the loss of Palmyra and of the retreat of the main forces SAA to Tiyas, the main problems in the East of HOMS province revolves around the airbase Tiyas.
Yesterday, during the day the Caliphate made several attacks on the airbase and was able to capture a few strongholds to the North of the airbase, but with the support of the Syrian aircraft and Russian helicopters, the Syrian infantry was able to repel the attack and hold the base. Today, the fighting continued, while in addition to the direct threats associated with attacks on the airbase, the enemy passes the airbase from the South, seeking to cut the communication between TECOM and al-Karathanos, taking the intersection to the South-West of Tiyasa. At 14 o’clock in the afternoon, fighting continued in the area of this intersection (the Caliphate claims that seized it, the Syrian sources have not confirmed). At the same time, there is activity of militants East of al-Qaryatayn.
SAA it is important to keep the air base, and to prevent a workaround of militants South of Tesa, for taking the crossroads between TECOM and al-Keratinom, the Caliphate will be able to create two threats – on the one hand a possible strike to the South-West to capture of al-Qaryatayn and Machina (which this year has twice passed from hand to hand), and on the other hand, it is possible to throw across the desert to the road leading to Ties that will lead to the fact that all departed from the Palmyra group is under threat operational environment.The role of aviation and attack helicopters in the relief of this threat will be very large, as restricting the activity of the enemy systematic shock, aircraft buying time for reinforcements that strengthen the Northern flank, to provide communications to the West of the air base and reinforce the front in the area of Tiyas.
The overall situation was unstable and about overcoming operational crisis is not necessary to speak, but the fact that the Caliphate yesterday, couldn’t swoop to take the airbase, allows us to hope that the inertia of the promotion of “black” will in the coming days to repay. Judging by incoming reports, the SAA strive to ensure the safety of the road leading to Tiyas. About any immediate countermeasures in order to return to Palmyra the question now of course is not.

Regarding the comparison of losses in Palmyra and Mosul, the Caliphate has released reports about the loss of the American coalition in Mosul and Syrian forces in Palmyra.
In Mosul, according to the version of the Caliphate from 6 to 12 December, were destroyed and damaged 8 tanks, 53 armored fighting vehicles, BMP 24, 9 bronenalladin and 4 UAVs. 8 armored combat vehicles and 1 BMP are taken as trophies. Killed 630 soldiers of the coalition, 20 captured.
In the PAL version of the Caliphate from the 8th to the 12th of December, was the destroyed, damaged and captured in the form of trophies – 44 tanks, BMP 7, 7 guns, 14 different trucks and vehicles. 352 killed soldier of the Syrian army, 22 captured.
Of course, you should make allowances for the fact that, in the interests of propaganda, the Caliphate increases the already rather big losses of their opponents.
It is worth noting that the emerging detailed description of the circumstances of the loss of Palmyra https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=1111519355627384&id=100003079907992 (in Arabic, it is possible to make use of the technical translation – there are a lot of interesting details, it would be good if someone translated it for the literary Russian), indicate that warnings from the Russian satellite intelligence that the threat to Palmyra, growing all did.

Tiyas Military Airbase
|Tiyas Military Airbase
|IATA: none – ICAO: none|
|Owner||Syrian Armed Forces|
|Operator||Syrian Arab Air Force|
|Location||Tiyas, Homs Governorate|
Location in Syria
The Tiyas Military Airbase is the largest airbase in Syria.
During the 1970s and 1980s, the Soviet Union was given access to the Tiyas Air Base for the periodical deployment of naval aircraft.
The airbase was used by the Syrian Arab Air Force for airstrikes against opposition forces during the Syrian Civil War.
In December 2016, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) attacked the airbase a day after overrunning pro-government forces in nearby Palmyra. ISIL claimed to have destroyed four Syrian military aircraft during their attack on the airbase.
