The Syrian army has made further gains in its battle against ISIL Takfiri militants as it takes control of more areas in the Homs countryside.
Syria’s official news agency SANA reported on Wednesday that the Syrian forces took control of three areas north of the al-Shaer gas field, close to a mountain by the same name in the Homs countryside.
The Syrian army killed an unspecified number of terrorists and destroyed a large amount of terrorists’ equipment during the attacks.
On November 6, Syrian army troops backed by pro-government fighters recaptured the strategic Shaer gas field in the central province of Homs.
The Shaer gas field, which feeds gas to the city of Homs and the capital Damascus, fell into the hands of Takfiri ISIL terrorists on October 30, when the terrorists launched an attack that killed dozens of pro-government forces and security guards.
