"Syrian soldiers stormed Nusra Front's strongholds in al-Rastan in Northern Homs, killing Amin Sameer al-Ruz Aka Abu Malik, a field commander of the group and eight more militants," the sources added.

A notorious commander of the al-Qaeda-affiliated al-Nusra Front was killed in clashes with the Syrian military forces in Northern Homs, FNA reports.

"In the meantime, Syrian Air Force bombed ISIL's positions in Unq al-Hawa and Wadi al-Mesk in Jubb al-Jarrah, claiming the lives of several militants and destroying their machinegun-equipped vehicles and rocket launching pads," the sources said.  

In relevant developments in the province on Tuesday, Syrian fighter jets carried out several combat flights over ISIL's concentration centers near three energy-rich regions, inflicting major losses on the Takfiri terrorists' sites and military vehicles.

ISIL's sites and military vehicles, loaded with ammunition, were targeted by the Syrian army aircraft in al-Sha'er and Jazal oilfields and near the town of Khneifes.

Daesh also suffered a heavy death toll in the raids.
