A video released on Friday by the Syrian military media center shows heavy fighting between Syrian government forces and Islamic State terror group militants in the city of Deir El-Zour (Deir ez-Zor).

The footage shows airstrikes on the terrorist position and Syrian Army forces firing machine guns and missiles.

The Syrian fighter jets, in a series of combat sorties on Saturday, targeted the ISIL gatherings and concentration centers near two key villages in the Eastern part of Deir Ezzur, inflicting major losses of the terrorists' military equipment.

The ISIL strongholds near the villages of al-Murayeh South of Euphrates River and al-Jafreh came under the bombardments of the Syrian armys' aircrafts.

The ISIL (Islamic State , ISIS , ISIL , IS and Daesh)  military equipment and machinegun-equipped vehicles were badly destroyed in the attacks.

The Takfiri terrorist group also suffered a heavy death toll in the air raids.

Earlier today, the Syrian Army refuted terrorists' claims about winning back a key district near the Eastern city of Deir Ezzur, and underlined the government forces' full control over the army-held territories in the province.

"The ISIL offensive to break through the government forces' positions in al-Sinaah district was repelled by the strong defense of the Syrian soldiers and popular forces," the army said, adding, "The ISIL used over 120 terrorists in its attacks."

"At least 25 ISIL terrorists were killed and many more were wounded in their failed attacks, the army added.
