Over 100 terrorists have been killed and scores more wounded in the Russian fighter jets' air raids on ISIL positions in different parts of the Central Homs province in the last 48 hours, military sources said on Friday.

"Over the past 48 hours, the Russian Air Force has been relentless in the Eastern territories of the Homs province, striking several sites controlled by the ISIL near the strategic town of Quaryatayn and the ancient city of Palmyra (Tadmur), which has claimed the lives of at least 100 terrorists," the sources said.

Earlier reports said that the Russian fighter jets carried out several combat flights over the ISIL terrorists' concentration centers in the Eastern part of Homs province and inflicted major losses on the militants.

Over 20 ISIL terrorists were killed and fifty more were wounded after the group's positions in two regions of al-Duweh and Jabal Hayyan in the Western and Southwestern parts of the ancient city of Palmyra (Tadmur) came under the heavy airstrikes of the Russian warplanes.

The Russian air fleets' operation near Palmyra provided very good aerial support for the Syrian ground forces, who for their part, inflicted major casualties on the terrorists.
