Wed Apr 20, 2016 20:19:35

The Syrian Army troops and the National Defense Forces continued to push the ISIS terrorists back from more positions in the Eastern part of Homs province, and restored security to more regions near the recently-liberated city of Palmyra (Tadmur).

The Syrian government forces launched a fresh round of offensives in the Northern side of Palmyra and forced the ISIS terrorists to retreat from the Antar chain mountains located in the Northern side of al-Tar mountain.

The ISIS left behind scores of the dead and wounded members and fled the battlefield to evade more casualties.

The ISIS military hardware also sustained major losses in the army's advances.

Reports said earlier today that the Syrian Army aircraft carried out several combat sorties over ISIS strongholds in the Eastern part of Homs province, including the surroundings of Palmyra and inflicted major losses on the terrorists.

The ISIS strongholds in the Southern and Northern sides of al-Shindakhiyeh and al-Sawanaa in the Eastern part of Homs province were heavily bombed by the Syrian air fleets.

The Syrian jets also hit the ISIS convoy of vehicles in the Northern and Southern sides of Palmyra, which ended in the destruction of several vehicles, including machinegun-equipped ones, and the killing or wounding of tens of the terrorists, FNA reported.
