TEHRAN (FNA)- The ISIL terrorists launched an offensive on Syrian Army military points in Badiyeh (desert) region of Homs province, as battlefield sources said the raid by ISIL came in coordination with the US-backed militants.
The Syrian Army troops engaged in fierce clashes with the ISIL terrorists who intended to penetrate into military points in al-Sukhna Desert in Eastern Homs, battlefield sources in Eastern Homs said.
The sources said several ISIL terrorists were killed after their vehicles came under strike by the Syrian Air Force.
The Arabic-language al-Watan newspaper also reported that the ISIL terrorists, who have exited al-Baqouz town under an agreement with the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), launched several attacks on the Syrian Army’s military positions in Badiyeh from Jabal Abu Rajmin in Northeastern Palmyra to Eastern Deir Ezzur.
The Arabic-language service of Russia Today (RT) also pointed to the reemergence of the ISIL in al-Tanf region in Eastern Homs and the terrorists’ attacks on the Syrian Army’s military points, and quoted local sources as saying that an operation is underway to relocate terrorists to this region.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), meantime, announced that the ISIL’s activities in Badiyeh region of Homs and the terrorist groups’ attacks on the Syrian Army in the region have increased after the US-led coalition declared the ISIL’s defeat in Eastern Euphrates.
Syrian army sources also accused the US-backed militants in East and South-East Syria of collaboration with the ISIL, saying that the ISIL attack took place after the terrorists were given a pass and assistance by the US-backed militants.
