Army Targets ISIL Militants’ Military Column North of Syria’s Deir Ezzur
A long convoy of ISIL terrorists’ military vehicles was traced and targeted by the Syrian Army near al-Hosseiniyeh village on Saturday.
Most of the vehicles in the ISIL convoy, including a fuel tanker and at least eight machinegun-equipped vehicles, were destroyed in the army attack.
Sources said on Friday that the Syrian Army and the country’s fighter jets, in a joint counter-assault, 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.
