The Palmyra offensive (March 2016) was a military operation started by the Syrian Arab Army in a bid to recapture from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant the Syrian city of Tadmur (near the ruins of the ancient city of Palmyra), which was strategically important for both forces due to its position in central Syria.

This offensive has been one of the most recent victories against ISIL, and has seen major government forces gains.
