Syrian Army soldiers struck ISIL’s defense lines in Western Badiyeh (desert) near the ancient city of Palmyra (Tadmur) and managed to win back more lands and positions, inflicting a heavy death toll on the terrorists.

The army men engaged in fierce clashes with the ISIL in a region between al-Bayarat and Tadmur, advancing against the terrorists in the region.

The ISIL suffered tens of casualties and lost several vehicles in the attack.

Tens of ISIL terrorists also fled the battlefield towards the depths of the Badiyeh desert.

The army soldiers also drove ISIL out of the village of al-Beidheh al-Sharqi to the East of the Fourth Station towards Bayarat.

In the meantime, the Syrian Air Force carried out repeated attacks on ISIL’s positions and its defense lines in Western Badiyeh of Tadmur, killing or wounding tens of them and destroying their vehicles.

Also, the army troops continued their advances to the Northwest of Palmyra and seized control of Hayan Gas Field Crossroad on Sunday.

ISIL lost a number of forces and its military equipment sustained major damage in the attack.

The army aircraft played a crucial role in the ground forces’ advances, reports said.

The warplanes bombed heavily ISIL’s military columns and gatherings near the gas and oil wells in Tadmur countryside, killing several terrorists.
