According to the Center for reconciliation of the conflicting parties in the territory of SAR, saboteurs from Army of East Lions group had to carry out a series of terrorist attacks and take the city for a week of the Photo: Department of information and mass communications of the Ministry of Defence of Russian Federation/TASS Fighters try to take Palmyra again. In the morning on September 1 from the Region of Et-Tanf to the Syrian Palmyra the diversionary group has tried to break. Support in preparation of break was given by the American forces, the Russian Ministry of Defence states. Two fighters taken prisoner have told about it, RIA Novosti reports. The Russian Center for reconciliation of the conflicting parties in the territory of SAR has reported that saboteurs had to carry out a series of terrorist attacks near Palmyra and occupy the city in a week. Fighters have arrived in the district of Palmyra from the area which is near military base of the USA in Et-Tanf and belonging to Army of East Lions. The fact that this group gets support of the USA and other western countries, not a secret at all. "Dzheysh Usud an ash-Sharkiya" — the insurgent organization, whose members in the majority the natives of Deir ez-Zor forced to leave in 2014 the city after he has been captured by the Islamic State banned in Russia. Then they have taken refuge in East Kalamun's mountains to the northeast from Damascus. Actually this movement consists of breeding fractions, in a varying degree victims of ISIL. In particular, in the tribe of al-shaytat ISIL members, according to some information, cut out 700 people then there was a militia which has joined later in "Dzheysh Usud an ash-Sharkiya".

Here it is about those groups which are concentrated under a wing of the USA, there is a lot of them. To recapture Palmyra is a declarative purpose. Secondly, naturally, want to distract attention from the main blow — Idlib. Americans, as well as their allies, proceed from the purposes — cooperate with various groups. About orders the speech doesn't go, but they supply, train and as a result then use in the purposes. These fighters aren't under direct supervision of the American, British or French command". Army of East Lions always saw the purposes in fight both with ISIL, and with "the godless Sefevidov mode", that is the power in Damascus. As of January, 2016, the group totaled 350 fighters. In a year its number, presumably, has grown to 500 people. However it is considered that except the proclaimed purpose — Bashar Al Assad's removal — the group has no distinct political program.
