Syria in Last 24 Hours: Terrorists Sustain Heavy Losses in Army Offensive in Homs Province

    (FNA)- The Syrian army attacked the terrorists in Homs province, and inflicted heavy losses on the militants over the past 24 hours.

The Syrian army killed and wounded scores of terrorists in the Northern territories of Homs province.

The Syrian army also inflicted heavy losses on the terrorist groups in other key regions across Syria.

Homs

Syrian Army soldiers targeted the positions of Fatah al-Sham Front (previously known as the al-Nusra Front) in three different regions in Northern Homs, inflicting heavy losses on the militants.

The army men pounded positions and movements of Fatah al-Sham near the villages of Tal Abu al-Sanasil, Eastern side of al-Ameriyeh and in the Eastern direction of al-Mashrafa, killing or wounding a number of them and destroying their vehicles.

Also, the army soldiers carried out a rapid counterattack on ISIL defense lines in a village the government forces lost to the terrorists on Friday, recapturing the village.

The army men inflicted heavy casualties on ISIL and drove them out of the village of Khatab in Eastern Homs only a few hours after the militants captured it.

ISIL suffered a heavy death toll in the battlefield.

In the meantime, the Russian Air Force carried out dozens of airstrikes across Syria’s Eastern part amid a massive assault on ISIL in Homs province.

Russian jets reportedly delivered airstrikes above the main ISIL’s supply line between Raqqa and Homs, resulting in the destruction of several terrorist oil tankers.

The Russian warplanes carried out a number of sorties near the T-4 Military Airport South of the same road to assist the Syrian Army in their battle against the encroaching terrorists.

Raqqa

The predominately Kurdish ‘Syrian Democratic Forces’ (SDF) continued to drive ISIL out of more lands in the second phase of the Euphrates Rage Operation to capture Raqqa, the self-proclaimed capital of the ISIL in Northeastern Syria.

The SDF inflicted major losses on the ISIL and captured two villages of Tariq and Jadi in the Eastern direction of the village of Karvan, killing and wounding tens of militants.

Over 48 ISIL were killed and seven bomb-laden vehicles and two machinegun-equipped vehicles of the terrorists were destroyed in the clashes that lasted for at least 36 hours.

The engineering units started to defuse mines and bombs planted by ISIL in the two newly-captured villages.

Meantime, fierce clashes have erupted between the SDF and ISIL in regions near al-Tabaqa Dam, while the ISIL had called on comrades in Raqqa to dispatch more militants to battlefields.

Deir Ezzur

The ISIL’s failed attack on the Syrian army positions near Deir Ezzur airport left 27 militants dead and tens of others wounded.

The ISIL terrorists launched massive strikes against the Syrian troops’ positions in al-Jafra district in the Southeastern parts of Deir Ezzur adjacent to the city’s graveyard using mortars and light and heavy weapons.

The militants could initially open their way into a few areas but the army and tribal forces in Deir Ezzur could launch counterattacks against them, killing 27 ISIL terrorists and wounding dozens of others, forcing the remaining militants to leave the region.

The terrorists sought to occupy the graveyard to come in control of a road linking the center of Deir Ezzur city to the airport in a later phase of their attacks, but failed.

Damascus

Syrian Army troops, backed up by the country’s warplanes, continued to beat back Fatah al-Sham Front (previously known as the al-Nusra Front) from more positions in Wadi al-Bardi region, inflicting heavy casualties on the militants.

The army men targeted the bases and positions of the terrorists in the villages of Deir Moqren, Kafr al-Zeit, Ein al-Fijeh, Basimeh and Ein al-Khezra, killing a number of militants and destroying their command posts and strongholds.

The army soldiers inflicted 10 casualties on militants in Basimeh in Wadi al-Bardi and managed to advance against terrorists in the region, capturing Kaftaro Complex and Dar al-Aytam in this village.

Dara’a

Syrian Army troops targeted several command bases of Fatah al-Sham Front (previously known as the al-Nusra Front) in the Southern province of Dara’a, destroying three of them.

The army soldiers targeted positions, bases and movements of Fatah al-Sham in Ba’ar al-Shayah, Southwest of al-Qariyeh al-Qarbi, the neighborhood of Tariq al-Sad, North and West of Refugee Camp, killing and wounding a number of terrorists and destroying their rocket launchers, machinegun-equipped vehicles, hell canons and a command base.

In the meantime, the army men hit terrorists’ positions near the village of al-Na’eimeh in Eastern Dara’a, killing and wounding several militants and destroying two command bases and a number of machinegun-equipped vehicles.

News sources affiliated to the dissident groups in Syria announced on Thursday that the Syrian government and the militants stationed in al-Sanamayn in Northern Dara’a signed a peace agreement.

“It was agreed that the Syrian army enter the districts controlled by the militant groups and those militants who don’t desire to accept the reconciliation will go to Dara’a with their light weapons. This is while the militants who accept the peace agreement can request amnesty by delivering their weapons,” a local source in the city said.

Al-Sanamayn is one of the biggest cities in the Northern parts of Dara’a which hosts the Syrian army’s important military positions.

The Syrian government has not yet confirmed reports on al-Sanamayn terrorists’ joining the reconciliation plan.

Aleppo

A retired Brigadier General of the Syrian Army disclosed on Saturday that government troops are about to launch a massive attack on the town of Al-Bab, North-East of Aleppo province, to pave the way for an ultimate offensive on ISIL’s de facto capital, Raqqa as clashes are already underway between the Turkey-backed militants and ISIL in the same region.

Mohammad Abbas underscored that the US army is trying to be mentioned in field equations in Raqqa (via participation in war on ISIL in Raqqa).

He further added that the ISIL is a mercenary of the US. The terrorist group is serving the interests of Washington in Syria and the entire region.

Abbas further stressed that the Syrian Army troops deployed in Kuweires region East of Aleppo are ready to carry out operation and move towards the town of al-Bab and the city of Raqqa.
