The Syrian Air Force's combat flights inflicted a major death toll on the ISIL terrorist group in a neighborhood of the Eastern city of Deir Ezzur and slowed down the terrorists' logistics movements.

The Syrian fighter jets, in several sorties, bombed the ISIL concentration centers in al-Kassarat neighborhood, which ended in the killing or injuring of dozens of the terrorists and destruction of the group's weapons and military equipment.

Reports said earlier today that a senior ISIL commander and at least 40 of his comrades were killed when their attacks on government forces' positions near Deir Ezzur were repelled by the Syrian Army men.

The ISIL launched a large-scale offensive on the pro-government forces strongholds near al-Sina'ah industrial area near the Western bank of the Euphrates River.

The ISIL began with the usual VBIED (vehicle borne improvised explosive device) attack that was thwarted by the Syrian soldiers before it could reach its intended target.

The ISIL lost over 40 militants during this failed assault, including their field commander Yahya Al-Ansari and several of his foreign men; FNA reported.
