Army units and the supporting forces restored security and stability to the whole al-Qaryatain city in Homs after the remaining gatherings of ISIS terrorists in it were eliminated, a source on the ground announced on Sunday.

Taking control of the city, which is located in southeastern Homs, came after the army units, in cooperation with the supporting forces, earlier advanced further inside it from various directions, removing all mines on their way, and had established control over the northern neighborhood.

The army units have hunted down fleeing ISIS terrorists inside the city and dismantled scores of explosive devices and mines left behind.

Earlier today, army units took control of al-Mazare’ and al-Kharroubi al-Kabir areas to the northwest of al-Qaraytain which are now completely secured after tens of explosive devices and mines were removed.

In the morning, the army’s air force conducted airstrikes against positions and dens of ISIS terrorists in the southern and eastern sides of al-Qarayatin and in Marmalet al-Qaryatain, leaving many terrorists dead and destroying their weapons and vehicles, some of them equipped with heavy machineguns.

In the eastern countryside of Homs province, the air force conducted launched strikes against gatherings, movements and supply routes of ISIS to the east and north of Palmyra city and to the north of al-Buseiri village, inflicting losses upon the terrorists there.

More hideouts and vehicles for ISIS terrorists were hit and destroyed in army airstrikes in the villages of al-Shindakhiyeh al-Shamaliyeh, Mannoukh and Housis; SANA reported.
