Syrian government forces have killed scores of Daesh and al-Nusra terrorists after attacking their positions in Homs province, reported Fars news.

The Syrian army and allied forces have made significant gains against Daesh (ISIL/ISIS) terrorists in Homs province, Iran's Fars news reported on Saturday.

Government forces carried out several offensives on Daesh positions in the province, shelling and storming their strongholds.

They attacked the terrorists in the al-Dowah region west of Palmyra, and close to the towns of Tir Ma'ala, Quaryatayn (south of Homs), Talbiseh (north of Homs) and near the village of Maksar al-Hassaan in the east of the province. The army reported a heavy death toll among the terrorists.

"Scores of the ISIL militants were killed and wounded in the Syrian pro-government forces' operation in Rajm al-Qasr, Jubb al-Jarrah, Mishirfeh al-Janoubiyeh hill and Tuloul al-Soud in the Southeastern part of the province," military sources told Fars.

"The Syrian pro-government forces also raided al-Nusra Front's defense lines in Hosh Hajo and al-Saan al-Aswad villages 20 km North of Homs city, inflicting heavy losses on Takfiri terrorists and destroying their bases along with the weapons and munitions inside them."
