The Syrian army units repulsed a heavy ISIS offensive to take control of a strategic base in the West-Central province of Hama on Friday.

The ISIS terrorists failed in their attempts to infiltrate into the base in the Northeastern parts of Mafkar al-Sharqi region on the outskirts of al-Salamiya town by the Syrian army's timely reaction.

Clashes between the governmental forces and the ISIS militants in the region took life of several terrorists and wounded scores of others.

On Thursday, the Syrian Army and its allies ambushed ISIS terrorists in the Eastern part of Hama province, killing a number of them and destroying their ammunition, a field source said.

According to the source, the ambush resulted in the destruction of a truck loaded with weapons and ammunition intended to be sent to ISIS terrorists in al-Sheikh Hilal village in Hama's Eastern regions and the killing of several terrorists.

"The Syrian army soldiers who were tipped off by intelligence agents managed to ambush the vehicle fully laden with mines and artillery shells in Hama province and killed all militants escorting the cargo," the military sources added.
