The Syrian army with the support of pro-government forces repulsed terrorists’ attack on army’s defense lines in a key region in the Eastern part of Homs province, media reports said on Thursday.

"The Syrian army managed to thwart the Takfiri terrorists' offensive on their military positions in Abu al-Alaya region in Eastern Homs," the Arabic-language media outlets quoted an unnamed battlefield source as saying.

Scores of ISIS terrorists were killed and wounded in the Syrian army's counteroffensive in Eastern Homs.

The Syrian fighter jets, in a fresh round of combat flights, targeted ISIS's concentration centers in the Eastern and Northeastern territories of Homs province, leaving dozens of the terrorists dead or wounded.

The Syrian army aircraft pounded one of the ISIS bases along the group's communication road in the Western side of the village of Tal Omri, which ended in the killing of several militants and destruction of their military equipment.

ISIS's gatherings in Southeastern side of the ancient city of Palmyra (Tadmur) were also attacked by the Syrian jet.

In relevant development on Monday, the Syrian warplanes traced and targeted a long column of ISIS's military vehicles on a road in the Eastern side of Palmyra city, causing serious damage on the convoy.

The army aircraft pounded ISIS's convoy near the desert town of al-Sukhneh in Eastern Homs, leaving most of the militant vehicles damaged.

In the meantime, the Syrian fighter jets targeted ISIS's gathering centers near the town of Khneifes in Southern side of Palmyra, which not only claimed the lives of several militants but destroyed their machinegun-equipped vehicles, FNA reported.
