    (ANSAmed) - BEIRUT, JUNE 1 - Militants from the Islamic State (Isis) over the past 24 hours have advanced from Palmyra, central Syria, towards the regions of Homs and Damascus, gaining control of a government position near Busayr, sources in the region of Palmyra conquered 10 days ago by Isis told ANSA.

    The sources said that gaining control of the Busayr checkpoint enables the jihadists to extend their area of influence around Qaryatayn, north-east of Damascus, already exposed to Isis fire and defended by local insurgents who oppose both the jihadists and government of Damascus.(ANSAmed).
