The Syrian Army traced and targeted a long military column of ISIL terrorists near Maheen in the Central Homs province, inflicting heavy losses on them.
The ISIL militants suffered heavy death toll and their military vehicles, loaded with weapons and ammunition, were destroyed in the army attack.
The Syrian army and National Defense Forces made a rapid advance inside the strategic town of Maheen in Homs province hours after they entered the town on Thursday, locals said, adding that ISIL sent hundreds of fresh troops to the town after sustaining a heavy defeat.
The Syrian forces also killed and injured a large number of Takfiri terrorists in the military operations, while later reports said ISIL was determined to repel the Syrian forces’ assaults and sent reinforcements several hours after the attack to help to push back the Syrian army and its allies.
Hundreds of ISIL terrorists escaped Maheen after the Syrian army and National Defense Forces entered the strategic town after weeks of fierce clashes with the Takfiri terrorists.
