Syria in Last 24 Hours: ISIL Terrorists Sustain Heavy Losses in Army’s Ambush Operations in Homs

The Syrian army and popular forces continued their military operations against the terrorist groups in Homs province, and killed scores of militants over the past 24 hours.

The army units seized a large amount of explosives and weapons from the terrorists in Homs province.

The Syrian army also inflicted heavy losses on the terrorist groups in other key provinces across Syria.


The Syrian military forces and popular fighters stormed the ISIL strongholds near the ancient city of Palmyra (Tadmur) and forced the militants to retreat from at least three key heights in the region.

The Syrian government forces’ anti-terrorism operation near Palmyra ended in the recapture of the heights of al-Hari citadel, 619 and 711 in al-Mazar mountain.

At least 18 members of the ISIL were killed and several more were wounded in the attacks.

The Syrian and Russian fighter jets, in a fresh round of combat sorties, targeted the ISIL positions in the Eastern and Southwestern parts of Homs province, while the army’s aircraft pounded al-Nusra Front’s strongholds in the Northern territories of the province.

The Syrian and Russian Air Force bombed jointly the ISIL strongholds in the oil-rich region of al-Shaer and Um al-Tababir, which ended in the killing or wounding of several militants.

The Syrian air fleet, meantime, struck the ISIL concentration centers near Palmyra and near al-Bardeh region in the Eastern side of the ancient Assyrian town of Quaryatayn, which also claimed the lives of several militants.

Al-Nusra gatherings in Tald, Houla, Borj Qai, Keisin and al-Rastan were massively bombed by the Syrian jets, pinning down the militants behind their defense lines.

Deir Ezzur

The Syrian fighter jets carried out two separate rounds of combat flights over ISIL strongholds near the Eastern city of Deir Ezzur and inflicted heavy casualties on the terrorists.

The ISIL strongholds near the strategic Deir Ezzur airbase and Southwestern countryside of the city came under massive bombardments of the Syrian army’s aircraft, in which not only scores of the ISIL terrorists were killed or wounded but the group’s armored vehicles were destroyed in large scale.


Dozens of ISIL terrorists were killed or wounded in the Syrian Army troops’ offensives in the Northeastern territories of Sweida province.

The Syrian soldiers engaged in fierce clashes with the ISIL near the village of al-Qasr in al-Badiyeh region, which ended in the killing or wounding of tens of the militants.

The ISIL, meantime, left behind its damaged military equipment and machinegun-equipped vehicles and fled the battlefront to evade more casualties.


A notorious commander of Ahrar al-Sham was killed in the Syrian Army troops’ offensives in the Northeastern part of the coastal province of Lattakia.

Ismayeel Ali Pasha known as Abi Ziya Banash was killed in a tough battle with the Syrian soldiers and popular forces near Tal al-Hadada.

The Syrian army has been engaged in heavy fighting with the terrorists in the Northeastern part of Lattakia, mainly in Tal al-Hadada, Rabi’eh and Salma to root out militancy in the region.


The Syrian army announced that its troops alongside their popular allies repelled the ISIL attacks along the strategic Ithriya-Salamiyah road and forced them to retreat from the battlefield under its heavy fire.

“The Takfiri terrorists suffered a heavy death toll and their military vehicles and equipment sustained major damage after the terrorist group’s offensive to take control over the Ithriya-Salamiyah road was fended off by the Syrian government forces,” the army said, adding, “The Syrian soldiers detonated the ISIL’s bomb-laden suicide cars before they reach to the government forces’ positions.”


The Syrian Army troops and National Defense Forces continued to target the concentration centers of Ahrar al-Sham and al-Nusra Front in Eastern Ghouta and pushed the militants back from more territories there.

The Syrian government forces drove the terrorist groups back from surroundings of Tal Farzat, which ended in the killing of several militants.

The army, meantime, took back several positions near Seyed Sakineh mausoleum and Sharideh square.

The Syrian fighter jets, in several combat flights, pounded the terrorist centers in Harasta al-Qantara axis from al-Marj direction.

The Syrian army’s artillery units, for their part, opened retaliatory fire at strongholds of terrorists near Zamalka bridge in Jobar.


A command center of al-Nusra Front in the Southern districts of Dara’a city came under attack by the Syrian military forces, city sources said Sunday, adding that several militants were killed in the attack.

“The Syrian Army troops targeted the command center of al-Qaeda-affiliated al-Nusra Front in Arba’een neighborhood in Dara’a al-Balad, which ended in the killing of at least 15 militants and wounding of several more,” the sources said, adding, “Al-Nusra military hardware and ammunition also sustained major damage in the attacks.”

Moreover, the so-called head of Fallujah, known as Haji Hamsa, and several of his aides were killed

during the army operation.

The Iraqi government deployed at least 20,000 troops to fight against the terrorists in the ISIL-held city of Fallujah.

The Iraqi army had called on residents of Fallujah to leave the city before the operations against the Takfiri terrorist group.

Iraqi forces on Monday began a military campaign to retake the ISIL stronghold of Fallujah in Anbar province.

Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Abadi announced the start of the military operation to recapture the city.

“It is time to liberate the city of Fallujah,” the Iraqi PM said.

He added that all kinds of the armed forces are involved in the operation, as well as several groups allied to Baghdad.

Fallujah has been under ISIL control since 2014.
