Dozens of ISIL Terrorists Killed in Clashes with Syrian Army at Homs’ Border with Deir Ezzur
The ISIL launched a large-scale offensive along the Homs-Deir Ezzur border, targeting the Syrian Army’s positions in Humeimeh region near the T-2 Pumping Station.
ISIL began the assault by firing several mortar shells at the army’s positions Northwest of Humeimeh.
The ISIL followed up the attack with a ground assault that targeted a hilltop used by the army to launch missile attacks on ISIL’s centers in the T-2 Station.
However, ISIL’s ground assault would take a disastrous turn after Syrian Army units rained anti-tank guided missiles on their pressing forces in Humeimeh.
The ISIL assault in the Humeimeh area would end within two hours, as the battlefield was littered with the terrorist group’s corpses and destroyed vehicles.
According to a military source in Palmyra, the Syrian Army killed more than 35 ISIL terrorists, while also destroying four armored vehicles and a tank.
Recently, the ISIL has been trying to recover territory in the Humeimeh area after losing a lot of ground to the Syrian Army over the last three weeks – all offensives have ultimately failed.
Relevant reports said on Wednesday that the military convoy of ISIL terrorists with at least six large military vehicles was en route from Northeast of the town of Humeimeh in Eastern Homs to the depth of Badiyeh in Deir Ezzur.
The artillery and aircraft pounded the convoy and destroyed most of the vehicles, killing a number of their crew.
In the meantime, the artillery and missile unis opened heavy fire at ISIL’s movements East of Jubb al-Jarrah, destroying two military vehicles and killing several terrorists.
