The Syrian air force on Monday targeted and destroyed several ISIS gatherings in the Northern part of Deir Ezzor province, a military source reported.

The source said the Syrian fighter jets struck the ISIS positions and gathering centers near agricultural lands and their nearby wheat silos just outside the al-Hosseiniyeh town, North of the city of Deir Ezzor, which ended in the destruction of a number of ISIS vehicles and heavy casualties among the terrorists.

In a separate development, terrorists' gatherings in al-Aza'a region near the town of Ayyash in the Western part of Deir Ezzor province were razed by the Syrian warplanes, resulting in the death of a number of terrorists and injury of many more.

Yesterday, over 100 ISIS fighters were killed during the terrorist group's offensive in Deir Ezzor.

ISIS conducted simultaneous assaults on both the Northern and Southern districts of Deir Ezzor City on Sunday, sending nearly 10 bombed vehicles fully laden with improvised explosive devices against the Syrian Army’s defenses in the Al-Harabesh and Al-Haweija districts, but all the bomb laden vehicles failed to reach their targets, battlefield reports said.

The ISIS assault on the Harabesh School District facility was the first to be repelled by the Syrian Armed Forces after a two hour long battle that ended with the terrorist group retreating to nearby Saker Island (Haweija Saker).

According to a military source, the Syrian Army forces killed just over 30 enemy combatants in ISIS's failed offensive to capture this district on the Western bank of the Euphrates River; FNA reported.
