Syrian army troops have conducted military operations against foreign-backed Takfiri militants in several areas across the Arab country, inflicting further losses on them.

Syria’s official news agency, SANA, said the army clashed with ISIS terrorists in the al-Panorama area in Deir Ezzor Province on Wednesday, and killed at least 20 militants.

An unspecified number of Daesh (ISIS / ISIL) terrorists were also killed in a military operation against their concentration centers in al-Tharda Mountain and al-Mayadeen road in the same province.

Earlier on Tuesday, Syrian warplanes targeted ISIS positions in the neighborhood of al-Sona’ and to the west of Deir Ezzor airport, killing a number of Takfiri militants and destroying their military equipment.

Meanwhile, the Syrian forces attacked gathering centers of terrorists from ISIS and al-Nusra Front in Dara’a Province as well as the northeastern countryside of Suwayda Province, leaving a number of Takfiri militants dead.

Separately, ISIS positions near the oil fields of Jazal and Shaer in the eastern countryside of Homs were targeted by Syrian troops. A number of militants were killed in the operation.

Syrian army forces retook control of the hill of Sawan to the west of Shaer oil field on Tuesday, a day after they purged Zamlet al-Mohr hill of the terrorists.

Meanwhile, 12 militants from the so-called Free Syrian Army were killed in a ISIS car bomb blast in the southeastern countryside of Homs, Lebanon's al-Ahed news website reported.

Syria has been gripped by a militancy it blames on some foreign governments.

UN special envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura estimates that over 400,000 people have been killed in the conflict, which has also displaced over half of the Arab country’s pre-war population of about 23 million.
