Syrian Army Recapture Lost Land to ISIL in Homs
The army men inflicted heavy casualties on ISIL and drove them out of the village of Khatab in Eastern Homs only a few hours after the militants captured it.
ISIL suffered a heavy death toll in the battlefield.
In the meantime, the Russian Air Force carried out dozens of airstrikes across Syria’s Eastern part amid a massive assault on ISIL in Homs province.
Russian jets reportedly delivered airstrikes above the main ISIL’s supply line between Raqqa and Homs, resulting in the destruction of several terrorist oil tankers.
The Russian warplanes carried out a number of sorties near the T-4 Military Airport South of the same road to assist the Syrian Army in their battle against the encroaching terrorists.
Reports said earlier today that Syrian Army troops engaged in fierce clashes with the ISIL terrorists in Northeastern Homs, inflicting several casualties on them and repelling their attacks.
The army soldiers fended off ISIL’s offensives on government force’s positions in the villages of Jubb al-Jarrah, al-Masoudiyeh, Maksar al-Hassan, Jabal al-Shoumeriyeh, Abu al-Alaya and Um al-Reish, killing and wounding a number of terrorists.
Clashes are underway between the army troops and ISIL in several flanks.
The Syrian Air Force also targeted ISIL’s defense lines near Jubb al-Jarrah.
