Syrian army forces have carried out a series of successful mop-up operations against Takfiri militants across the country, media reports say.

A military source, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the Syrian troops stormed terrorist hideouts in the town of Job al-Ahmar, located about 48 kilometers (29 miles) northeast of the western port city of Latakia, on Saturday.

About 300 terrorists were killed in the clashes, Syria’s official news agency SANA reported.

The self-proclaimed commander of the so-called 1st Coastal Brigade, identified by the nom de guerre, Khaled Aous, was among the slain militants.

The Syrian source added that vehicles used by terrorists and a considerable amount of munitions were also destroyed during the operation.

Separately, nearly 20 members of the ISIS Takfiri militants were killed when Syrian forces repelled an assault on the Deir ez-Zor military airport. A ISIS commander, identified by the nom de guerre as Abu Yusuf al-Iraqi, was among the militants killed.

Syrian soldiers also launched separate clean-up operations across the western-central province of Hama. Militants were dealt a major blow in that operation as well.

The Syrian army, backed by the country's air force, also carried out successful precision strikes against militant positions in the towns of Um Sharshouh, Tal Abu al-Sanasel, Ghajar Amir, al-Ghantou and Talbisa in the central province of Homs.

Elsewhere on the outskirts of the capital, Damascus, Syrian forces established control over several building blocks in the town of Noula; Press TV reported.
