The Syrian air force destroyed the defense lines of the Takfiri terrorists in Raqqa province.

The army units backed by the popular forces inflicted heavy losses on the militants in Raqqa province, killing scores of militants and injuring many more in heavy clashes.

The Syrian army and popular forces also hit hard the military positions of the Takfiri terrorists in other key provinces across Syria.


The Syrian air force raided and destroyed a military convoy of the ISIL terrorist group that was moving towards Ein Issa town in Raqqa province.

The ISIL military convoy was targeted and destroyed by the Syrian fighter jets in Raqqa province.

All militants in the military vehicles were killed in the Syrian air force attacks.

In a relevant development, the ISIL terrorist group confirmed that it has pulled its militants back from a key town in the Northern part of Raqqa province at the border with Turkey under the heavy attacks of the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) alongside the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

The Kurdish fighters had significantly advanced against the ISIL militants in the town of Tal Abyadh and had pushed the terrorists back from the town.

The YPG and SDF fighters are now engaged in fortifying their positions inside and outside of the town.

The ISIL suffered a heavy death toll in the attacks.

Meantime, around 250 militants in the Southern province of Dara'a laid down their arms on Monday and turned themselves in to the Syrian officials as the pro-government forces keep on advancing across the country.

The militants formerly fighting in the Southern battlefields of the country surrendered to the Syrian government as the forces loyal to the Syrian President Bashar Assad continue gaining ground across the country.

The 250 surrendered militants are mostly from al-Sanamein region, including 130 from the village of Kefr Shams.


The Syrian Army troops' advances against the militant groups in the Southeastern part of Aleppo province paved the way for restoring security to at least 95 kilometers of the main supply line of government forces inside the province.

The Syrian army's heavy attacks pushed the ISIL back from their positions along a road connecting Khanaser to al-Safirah.

The Syrian government forces, who recaptured Ithriya-Khanaser road completely, inflicted a heavy death toll on the ISIL and imposed full control over more kilometers a main supply line starting in Hama and finishing in Aleppo.

Deir Ezzur

The Syrian army and air force heavily pounded and destroyed the military positions and gathering centers of the ISIL terrorists in Deir Ezzur province.

The Takfiri terrorists' military positions were razed down by the army units in al-Hamidiya, al-Haviqa, al-Aza and al-Sana'a districts in Deir Ezzur city.

The Syrian air force also annihilated the ISIL's military positions and gathering centers in al-Jafra village in the Eastern part of Deir Ezzur province, killing score of militants and destroying their machinegun-equipped military vehicles.

Meantime, other army units destroyed the gathering centers of the ISIL terrorists in Bu Kamal town, killing scores of terrorists in al-Ketf and Mosmekar regions.

Also, the ISIL's gathering centers, a satellite communication station and a fuel reservoir were destroyed in Sfaira al-Fouqani village.


The ISIL militants left behind scores of the dead and wounded members and fled more positions in the Northern and Eastern parts of Homs province under the heavy offensives of the Syrian Army and the National Defense Forces.

The Syrian government forces continued to hit the ISIL lines of defense in Jazal region and forced the militant group to pull forces back from the battlefield.

The Syrian army and allies further imposed full control over eight more hills in Jazal region.

The ISIL suffered a heavy death toll and its military hardware sustained major damage in the attacks.


Military sources in the Northwestern battlefield of the country underlined the Syrian Army and its allies' full preparedness and their plan for carrying out a large-scale operation in the Southern part of Idlib province in near future.

The Syrian army and their allies, who imposed full control over the village of Ein al-Beidha at the border of Lattakia province and Idlib, have deployed their forces only 15 km from the strategic city of Jisr al-Shughour’s southwestern side.

In the meantime, Jabal al-Akrad (Kurds Mountain) has been flooded with soldiers from the Syrian army, testifying the government forces' firm will to push towards North in Idlib territories.

These soldiers are preparing for what is likely to become the Syrian army’s epic return to Jisr al-Shughour after losing the city just 9 months ago.

Reports said that the Russian warplanes, in a fresh round of anti-terrorism combat flights, targeted the al-Qaeda-affiliated al-Nusra Front's positions in the Southern part of Idlib province and inflicted a heavy death toll on the terrorists.

The Russian fighter jets stuck Nusra centers near the strategic town of Jisr al-Shughour, which ended in the killing or wounding of several terrorists and destroyed their military equipment, vehicles and weapons.


The Syrian Army and Hezbollah fighters continued to push the ISIL terrorists back from more key territories in the Northeastern part of Hama province following hours of heavy fighting with the militant group.

The Syrian government forces, who had liberated the village on Hammam on Saturday, launched a mop-up operation in the surrounding heights of the village and cleansed the Northern side of the village and Hammam Height from the terrorists to restore more security to the Ithriya-Khanaser road.

The Syrian army and allies are fortifying their positions.

Hammam and its heights overlook Abu al-Karouz region. The Syrian army will soon launch another offensive to free two heights in the Eastern side of Abu al-Karouz region.
