Dozens of ISIS suicide bombers were arrested by the Syrian forces along al-Tabaqa airbase road before they could carry out their operations, military sources said.

"The army men and the National Defense Forces (NDF), tipped off by the intelligence agents, surrounded the group of the ISIS terrorists carrying suicide-belts and arrested them," the sources said, adding, "The suicide attackers were mostly between 16-20 age and even one of them was at the age of 13."

"Three of the suicide bombers exploded their explosives but none of the army men was injured in the blasts," the sources said.

Earlier reports said that the Syrian Army troops and NDF, who captured al-Rasafeh energy-rich region earlier today, hit ISIL's positions around the region's oil and power facilities and captured them after hours of heavy clashes.

The Syrian government forces won the battle against the ISIS in al-Rasafeh triangle and captured oil pumping station and power station in this region.

The Syrian soldiers and NDF moved towards al-Rasafeh crossroad from Ithriya-Raqqa road.

The Syrian army men have cut off the ISIS communication lines in this region and are now hunting the remaining pockets of the Takfiri militants near al-Rasafeh, FNA reported.
