The ISIS's attacks to penetrate into the government forces' positions between the village of Qasr al-Hayer and the ancient Assyrian town of al-Quayratayn were fended off by the strong defense of the Syrian military men.

Meantime, the Syrian army and popular forces continued their military advances in other parts of Syria, including Damascus and Aleppo, over past 24 hours.

Tens of terrorists were killed and dozens more were injured during the Syrian army's operations in Syria's key provinces.

Deir Ezzor

The Lebanese Hezbollah Resistance Movement has dispatched a large number of its experienced fighters to Deir Ezzor to help the Syrian Army troops and its popular allies end ISIS's siege on the Eastern city, provincial sources said.

"Hezbollah has sent its first group of elite fighters to the military airport in Deir Ezzor province," the sources said.

"The Syrian army’s 104th and 137th brigades have been under ISIS siege in the Deir Ezzor for over a year now," the sources added.

"However, this situation is expected to change in the coming weeks as Hezbollah mobilizes its elite units to help protect the provincial capital of Deir Ezzur and liberate several areas under ISIS control," they went on to say.


The Syrian army continued its advances in Damascus countryside by pushing back the Takfiri terrorists in tough battle and also by taking control of key regions there.

The army units took full control of Jasreen farms in Eastern Ghouta in Damascus countryside after killing a large number of Al-Nusra Front terrorists.

The Takfiri terrorists sustained heavy losses and casualties in fierce clashes with the Syrian government troops.

Also, the Syrian Army troops and popular forces launched more attacks on terrorist groups' strongholds in Eastern Ghouta to pave the ground for pushing the militants back from Mayda'a and Hawsh al-Farah regions, military sources announced.

"The Syrian government forces targeted Hawsh al-Dawahirah and Hawsh Nasri South of Hawsh al-Fara with heavy artillery and short-range missiles to prevent potential reinforcements of militants into Hawsh al-Farah," the sources said, adding, "Dozens of Jeish al-Islam fighters have been seriously wounded when the army blew off several entrenches dug to the North of Mayda’a."

Informed sources close to Jeish al-Fatah reported on Sunday that 24 ringleaders of the terrorist group are among the 167 militants killed in Aleppo recently.

They also added that 5 tanks and 34 military vehicles belonging to the terrorists were destroyed during the fighting.

Also, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) quoted a Jeish al-Fatah commander as saying that the terrorist group has sustained big losses and damage in the war with the Syrian army in Southern Aleppo.

Meantime, military sources said on Saturday that hundreds of Jeish al-Fatah terrorists crossed Turkey's border into Northern Syria to join their comrades in the mountainous battlefields of the coastal province of Lattakia that has been the scene of government forces' advances in the recent days.

"After significant advances of the Syrian army and its popular allies against the terrorist groups near the border with Turkey, Ankara paved the way for scores of the terrorists to enter Lattakia to join their comrades from Chechnya and Caucasus deployed in Turkmen mountain," the sources said.


The Syrian military troops, in a fresh round of mop up operation on the Southern side of al-Tabaqa airbase, discovered a large depot of ISIS arms and ammunition left behind by the Takfiri terrorists under the heavy attacks of the Syrian government forces in the recent days.

The Syrian Army aircraft bombed the ISIS gatherings and concentration centers in al-Mansoureh, the town of al-Tabaqa and al-Tabaqa airbase, which not only left at least 30 terrorists dead but destroyed their strongholds.


The Syrian Army troops continued to hunt the al-Qaeda-affiliated al-Nusra Front's members in the Southern districts of Dara'a city, military sources said, adding that the army also inflicted major damage on the militants' sites.

"The Syrian soldiers stormed al-Nusra's positions in the neighborhood of al-Kark in Dara'a al-Balad in the Southern part of Dara'a city, which ended in the killing of several militants and destroyed their military hardware, including their mortar units," the sources said, adding, "Military vehicles of al-Nusra sustained major damage in the Syrian army's attacks on the Takfiri terrorists' positions in the Southern side of al-Jamarek al-Qadim neighborhood in Dara'a al-Balad."
