Wed May 4, 2016 16:37:54

At least 170 ISIS terrorists were killed and many more were wounded in the joint offensives of the Syrian Army troops and the Russian Air Force in an oil-rich region in the Eastern part of Homs province.

The Syrian-Russian coordinated heavy attacks on the ISIS (Daesh / ISIL) positions near al-Hail oilfield ended in the killing of at least 170 militants, while the terrorist group's military hardware sustained major damage too.

Reports said earlier today that the Syrian Army troops' strong defense and heavy fire fended off the ISIS fresh round of attacks on the government forces' strongholds in the oil-rich region of Homs province, claiming the lives of several terrorists, including a Saudi field commander.

The ISIS's large-scale assaults to break through the government forces' positions in the Eastern and Northern sides of al-Sha'er oilfield failed and the ISIS suffered a heavy death toll and fled the battlefield without any result.

One of the senior ISIS commanders in Homs province with the Saudi nationality was among the killed terrorists.

The ISIS armored vehicles and mortars sustained major damage in the attacks, FNA reported.
