Syrian Army Regains more Grounds against ISIL in Homs with Russian Air Support
Fri May 13, 2016 22:46:59

The Syrian military forces, backed up by the Russian fighter jets, hit badly the ISIL concentration centers and gatherings in the Eastern part of Homs and drove the terrorists back from more territories in the Northern side of Homs-Palmyra highway.

The Syrian soldiers, in a coordinated operation with the Russian air force, pushed back ISIL terrorists from the territories in the Northwestern side of Tiyas airbase, which ended in the killing or wounding of scores of the terrorists.

The Syrian government forces' advances ended the ISIL shelling of Tiyas airbase (T4).

Reports said earlier today that the Syrian Army troops fended off the ISIL attacks on government forces' positions along Homs-Palmyra highway, inflicting major losses on the terrorists.

The ISIL terrorists stormed the pro-government forces' strongholds near T4 military air port to cutoff the army's supply route to the ancient city of Palmyra (Tadmur), but their attacks were repelled by the Syrian soldiers.

The Syrian army itself closed off the Homs-Palmyra Highway due to security concerns.

The ISIL suffered a heavy death toll and its military hardware sustained major damage in the failed attacks, FNA reported.
