The Syrian Army troops fended off the ISIS terrorist group’s attempts to prevail over the government forces’ strongholds around the vital military airport of Deir Ezzor and forced them to retreat from the battlefront, a source in the airbase said.

"The Syrian soldiers thwarted the ISIS offensive to break through its positions near Deir Ezzor airbase and al-Sina'ah district, which left scores of the terrorists killed or wounded," the source said.

"The ISIS left behind its military equipment and dead members and fled the battlefields in order to evade more casualties," he further added.

The source went on to day that at least 70 members of the ISIS were killed and many more were wounded in the recent days' clashes with the army men in Deir Ezzor.

Reports said on Saturday that Syrian fighter jets pounded and destroyed the military positions and gathering centers of the ISIS terrorists near the military airport in Deir Ezzor province, inflicting heavy losses on the terrorists.

The ISIS sustained heavy losses in the Syrian airstrikes in Tal Kroum (hill of Kroum) near Deir Ezzor military airport.

The Takfiri terrorists' military vehicles equipped with heavy machineguns were destroyed in Syrian airstrikes.

Meantime, the ISIS's military positions and gathering centers in the village of al-Mura'yeh were razed down in the Syrian airstrikes.

The ISIS's armored and military vehicles equipped with heavy machineguns were also destroyed in the Syrian fighter jets' raids, FNA reported.
