Homs: Tough Battle Underway Between Army, Militants in Central Syria
The Syrian army and the National Defense Forces stormed the ISIL strongholds near the ancient Assyrian town of Quaryatayn, which has thus far claimed the lives of many terrorists.
The ISIL military equipment also sustained heavy damage in the battle.
Reports said earlier today that the Syrian fighter jets carried out several combat sorties over the ISIL strongholds in the Eastern and Southeastern parts of Homs province and inflicted major losses on the terrorists.
The ISIL positions in the Western and Eastern sides of the ancient city of Palmyra (Tadmur), the village of Rasm al-Arnab and Wadi Abyadh in the Eastern part of province came under the heavy bombardments of the Syrian warplane, which ended in the destruction of a number of the terrorists’ vehicles.
In the meantime, the Syrian army’s jets pounded the ISIL positions in the Eastern side of the town of Maheen, which claimed the lives of several militants and destroyed their military hardware.
