The ISIS military hardware also sustained major damage in the attacks.

The Syrian fighter jets, for their parts, hit heavily the Daesh concentration centers near al-Maher, al-Sha'er, Eastern side of Palmyra (Tadmur), the village of Um al-Tababir and al-Masak valley, which ended in the killing or injuring of dozens of the terrorists.

The ISIL concentration centers in the Eastern side of Jazal oilfield, the Northern and Western sides of al-Maher gas field and the Western side of al-Maher pumping station were heavily bombed by the Syrian warplanes.

At least 12 ISIS terrorists were killed and several more were wounded in the attacks, FNA reported.
