Syrian Ground, Air Forces Repel ISIL Offensive in Deir Ezzur Airbase
The Syrian Army and the country’s fighter jets, in a joint counter-assault on Friday, fended off the ISIL terrorists’ attack on the strategic Deir Ezzur airbase, leaving at least 25 militants dead or many more wounded.
The Syrian war plane targeted the ISIL combatants’ military vehicles near Deir Ezzur airbase this morning and played key role in pushing them back from the surroundings of the airbase.
The airbase defenders, for their part, carried out a rapid counter-attack after the Syrian fighter jets pounded the ISIL military column, and killed nearly 25 militants.
The pro-government forces also retook control over more areas after their successful counter-attack near Deir Ezzur airbase.
On Wednesday, the Syrian fighter jets bombed strongholds of the Takfiri terrorists in the provinces of Deir Ezzur and Aleppo, inflicting heavy losses on them.
The Syrian airstrikes destroyed concentration centers of Takfiri terrorists in the villages of Hamima, Tal Ahmar, Akwla, Rasm al-Abad, Khan al-Assal, Kafr Hamra and al-Hawika on the outskirts of Aleppo and Deir Ezzur.
The terrorists reportedly suffered heavy losses in the air attacks.
