Also five civilians were killed and dozens more were injured, some of them women and children, in a series of terrorist mortar attacks on neighborhoods in Damascus on Friday night.

A source at the Police Command said that two mortar shells fired by terrorists fell in al-Duwaila’a neighborhood in Damascus claimed the lives of 4 civilians and injured 25 others.

The source said five more shells fell in the neighborhoods of al-Qasa’a, Bab Touma, al-Qaimariye, and al-Hamidiye, killing one civilian and injuring 12 who were rushed to hospitals.

The attacks also damaged homes and cars.

Earlier on Friday, two civilians were injured after armed terrorist groups launched mortar shells on Marouna and Harasta in Damascus countryside.

A source at the province’s Police Command said that terrorists fired 5 mortar shells on Marouna and one on Harasta, causing the injury of two civilians and material damage to the properties in the targeted areas.

On Friday morning, the Syrian Arab Army’s Special Forces – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) – carried out a powerful assault on Al-Nusra Front terrorists at Al-Kabeer, killing 16 inside this town in the Latakia Governorate’s Northeastern countryside.

According to a military source in Latakia, the Syrian Armed Forces destroyed three armored vehicles mounted with a 23mm anti-aircraft machine gun, while also clearing a small hilltop before noon on Friday.

Also, on Friday morning, the ISIL attempted to mount another assault on the army base to the Southwest of the Deir Ezzur military airport; however, the Syrian Arab Army’s 137th Artillery Brigade of the 17th Reserve Division – in coordination with the 104th Airborne Brigade of the Republican Guard – repelled the attack for the third time since Monday.

As a result, the terrorist group was forced to withdraw their fighters to the Artillery Battalion Base, allowing for the Syrian Arab Army’s 137th Brigade to launch a counter-assault amid the multitude of airstrikes from the Syrian Arab Air Force (SAAF).

Also, last night, the National Defense Forces (NDF) were able to repel Jaysh Al-Islam’s attempt to capture the Harasta National Hospital; however, on Friday morning, the rebel group returned and continued where they left off the day before – firefights are still ongoing near the hospital, as the NDF attempts to repel the attack once again.

Also in the past 24 hours, military sources said that the Syria Armed Forces defended their positions against the ISIL Takfiri terrorists’ attacks in the Eastern province of Deir Ezzur, and killed nearly 100 militants in their anti-ISIL operations.

The sources said that the ISIL attempted one suicide attack, which was aimed at the Syrian army’s checkpoint near the Artillery Battalion’s Housing Quarter; however, the suicide bomber’s vehicle borne improvised explosive device (VBIED) was destroyed by the checkpoint guards before it could reach its desired destination.

As the ISIL attempted to advance their position from the Artillery Battalion towards the Deir Ezzur Airbase, the aforementioned terrorist group ran into a well-defended area that was swarming with soldiers from the Syrian army’s 137th Artillery Brigade of the 17th Reserve Division and the 104th Airborne Brigade of the Republican Guard.

The ISIL was not able to withstand the fierce resistance from the Syrian army troops near the Agricultural Building; this resulted in the terrorist group’s withdrawing towards the Artillery Battalion.

Not long after their withdrawal, the Syria Air Force made its first appearance in this battle, targeting the ISIL’ forces’ positions at the Artillery Battalion, Al-Muri’iyah Farms, and Al-Jafra.

Intense firefights are still ongoing to the North of the Artillery Battalion; however, the Syrian army is in full-control of the airbase and at least 3 square km of territory around it.

The source further added that an estimated 100 ISIL militants have been killed in the last 48 hours, including a number of foreign terrorists from North Africa.

Shaytat Tribesmen have issued a warning to the ISIL; if any ISIL terrorists are captured, they will be executed.
