INTELLIGENCE UPDATE

OVERVIEW 06 DECEMBER 2016 AT 01:00 ZULU

Daesh fighters are expected to make a final move on the town of Palmyra this morning after taking the airport late last night.  

The Syrian Army has retreated to the Palmyra Army Depot and are expected to hold the base against the current Daesh attack.  The Palmyra Army Depot is a suspected WMD storage area, and it’s in Syria’s best interest to secure these weapons from being compromised.

The State Department and OGA have reached out to the Syrian leadership to offer assistance in securing the WMD but all offers have been declined.

The COALITION partners have determined that WMD falling into the hands of DAESH is to be avoided at all cost.
________________________________________

The Russian Navy Task Force centered around t
he Cruiser VARYAG is expected to make port at Tartus this afternoon.  Refueling and replenishment operations are expected to take 12 hours.  
________________________________________

RIVET JOINT has detected indications of a new SA-3 battery located at TIYAS airbase.  The proximity to the FEBA near Palmyra indicates that the Syrians intend to hold TIYAS in the face of any organized Daesh attack.
________________________________________

The new teletype link (POLECAT) between the Syrian Ministry of Defense, RUAFHQ and JACKAL is now operational. This development is meant to ensure positive communications between military leadership on all sides of the situation in Syria.
