Syrian fighter jets bombed the positions of the al-Qaeda-affiliated al-Nusra Front in the Central province of Homs on Saturday, inflicting heavy losses on them.
The Nusra strongholds in the surroundings of Tirmaala and Jawalik towns were massively bombed by the Syrian warplanes, which resulted in destructions of the militant sits’ infrastructures and ammunition depot.
On Friday, the Syrian Army alongside popular forces pushed back militant groups from vast areas in the Northern parts of Homs province, and won back three more villages in their operations.
The sources said that the army and popular forces seized back Snisil, al-Mahatta and Jawalak villages in the Northern countryside of Homs, after heavy clashes with the terrorist groups.
Several strategic regions in the Northern countryside of Homs province were regained by forces trained by a Brigade that was formed by Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) Commander Brigadier General Hossein Hamadani who was killed in Northern Syria earlier this month.
Imam Reza (AS) Brigade that was formed of the Syrian popular forces by Brigadier General Hamadani and trained by the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement could recapture a number of blocks and farms in Mukhtariya district in the Eastern part of Tir al-Ma’aleh region, Homs province, a field source told FNA on Thursday.
He added that Imam Reza (AS) forces also inflicted heavy loss and damage on the terrorists’ strongholds in the region and made them flee the scene after fierce clashes.
The IRGC in a statement on October 9 announced that its war veteran commander had been killed in Northern Syria, while providing military counseling services to the Syrian forces in their fight against the Takfiri terrorists.
General Hamadani was martyred during an attack by the ISIL Takfiri terrorists in the outskirts of the city of Aleppo while fulfilling his duty as military advisor and defending the holy Shiite shrines in the country, said the statement.
General Hamadani was in Syria to render military advice to the Syrian army and popular forces in their fight against the ISIL terrorists in the Arab country.
