Syrian Army troops, backed by the country's warplanes, have pushed back ISIL's attacks on Deir Ezzur airbase and have pulled the terrorists back from the battlefield under heavy fire and bombardments.

ISIL terrorists launched large-scale attacks on government positions from al-Thardah mountain in the Southern countryside of Deir Ezzur towards airbase.

ISIL used several bomb-laden suicide cars and its missile units shelled government positions heavily, but the army troops managed to destroy the suicide cars before reaching their positions.

The Syrian army later called for aerial coverage, and the Syrian warplanes targeted ISIL's positions and vehicles.

Scores of ISIL members were killed or wounded and their armored vehicles were destroyed in the failed attacks.

The Syrian fighter jet further bombed ISIL's positions near al-Thardah mountain and the 137th regiment.  

On Friday, Syrian warplanes bombed heavily ISIL's sites in the Southern side of the Euphrates River in Deir Ezzur province, slowing down the terrorist group's movements in the region.

The Syrian Army aircraft pounded ISIL's bases near the village of al-Mura'yeh on the Western side of Deir Ezzur, grounding the terrorists in their strongholds.

Also, ISIL's gatherings near al-Thardah mountain on the Southern side of Deir Ezzur were smashed by the Syrian jets.

Three tanks, seven machinegun-equipped vehicles and two armored vehicles of the ISIL were destroyed in the air raid; FNA reported.
