Scores of ISIL Terrorists Killed in Clashes with Syrian Soldiers in Deir Ezzur
The ISIL offensives with bomb-laden suicide vehicles to break through the government positions in al-Roshdiyeh district were fended off by the heavy fire of the Syrian army.
The ISIL left behind at least 50 members dead and many more wounded and fled the battlefield with no gain.
In the meantime, the Syrian military forces clashed with the ISIL terrorists and did not allow them to advance in al-Sina’ah district.
Intelligence agents disclosed earlier today that relocation of more fresh pro-government forces to Deir Ezzur province and the Syrian army’s successful advances against the ISIL in recent days caused the terrorist group to order forces to be on alert to confront the imminent operation of the army.
“After detonation of two tunnels under the ISIL positions near Deir Ezzur and arrival of popular forces to the battlefields, the Takfiri terrorist group intensified security measures and called on its Hasaba (monitoring system) and police forces to be ready to join battle against the Syrian army and its allies,” the sources said.
