The Syrian army struck heavy blows at the Takfiri militants in Homs province amid reports of intensified air attacks on the terrorist’ positions in the Central province.

The Syrian warplanes bombed militants’ positions in the ancient city of Palmyra in Homs province on Thursday.

The army also fired artillery shells at terrorists’ positions in the cities of Quaryatayn and al-Houla in the province.

Reports said a large group of militants were killed in the attacks.

However, there are no immediate reports of the exact number of the casualties on the part of the terrorists.

Reports said on Wednesday that the Syrian army destroyed mortars and two machine gun-equipped vehicles of ISIL, killing scores of Takfiri terrorists in Tal al-Kharoub al-Kabeer near al-Quaryatayn in Homs.

Military sources also said that scores of ISIL Takfiri terrorists were killed and injured by the army in the countryside of Palmyra city.

The sources added that a unit of army clashed with a terrorist group affiliated to ISIL in al-Dawa area, 17km West of Palmyra city.

Some 11 Takfiri terrorists were confirmed dead during the clashes and three machine gun- equipped vehicles.

Earlier reports said, the Syrian Army and the National Defense Forces (NDF) launched a counter-assault at the ancient city of Palmyra (Tadmur) in the province of Homs after they successfully repelled ISIL’s attempted advance.

“The Syrian Armed Forces began their counter-assault at the small village of al-Dawa in Palmyra’s Western countryside, where they successfully cleared the area of all the ISIL fighters that were entrenched around the road leading to the ancient city,” the army said.

“Following their success at al-Dawa, the Syrian army troops and their allies shifted their attention to the Ancient Palmyra Quarries from the Northwestern side, backed up by the Russian Air Force’s fighter jets,” the army went on to say.

“The Syrian Armed Forces recaptured territory that was lost to the ISIL along the main stretch of quarries in Palmyra’s Northern countryside,” the army said, adding, “Clashes are still ongoing between the Syrian soldiers and the ISIL in the foothills of Palmyra.”

Syrian army and its allies, backed up by the Russian and Syrian warplanes, have been pounding the militant groups’ defense lines and concentration centers near Palmyra in recent weeks to pave the ground for recapturing the city from the ISIL with the lowest number of casualties possible.

The Syrian army and its allies are resolved to push back the ISIL from Homs province, specially from Palmyra which is a treasure of historic monuments.
