The army units killed at least 7 ISIL terrorists and destroyed their military vehicle equipped with a 14.5milimeter machine gun in Tal Brouk, Northwest of Deir Ezzur city.
The Syrian army destroyed the terrorists’ weapons and ammunition in the surrounding areas of Panorama to the Southwest of the city of Deir Ezzur.
The Syrian troops repelled also ISIL’s offensives on government forces’ positions along the heights near the Eastern city of Deir Ezzur, claiming the lives of at least 165 terrorists.
Syrian soldiers, backed by tribal forces, fended off ISIL’s attacks to break through government positions near Brouk heights, leaving at least 165 terrorists dead and many more wounded.
Brouk heights enjoy strategic importance for both the Syrian army and terrorists due to its overlooking advantages over Deir Ezzur city.
