18 March 2016 14:49



The Syrian army units repulsed a heavy ISIL offensive to take control of a strategic base in the West-Central province of Hama on Friday.

The ISIL terrorists failed in their attempts to infiltrate into the base in the Northeastern parts of Mafkar al-Sharqi region on the outskirts of al-Salamiya town by the Syrian army’s timely reaction.

Clashes between the governmental forces and the ISIL militants in the region took life of several terrorists and wounded scores of others.

On Thursday, the Syrian Army and its allies ambushed ISIL terrorists in the Eastern part of Hama province, killing a number of them and destroying their ammunition, a field source said.

According to the source, the ambush resulted in the destruction of a truck loaded with weapons and ammunition intended to be sent to ISIL terrorists in al-Sheikh Hilal village in Hama’s Eastern regions and the killing of several terrorists.

“The Syrian army soldiers who were tipped off by intelligence agents managed to ambush the vehicle fully laden with mines and artillery shells in Hama province and killed all militants escorting the cargo,” the military sources added.
