The Syrian Army identified and destroyed two explosive-laden vehicles of Daesh before the terrorist group could detonate them near the government forces' positions, which took the lives of several terrorists.
According to a source, militants, most of whom were of foreign origin, suffered heavy losses and were forced to flee. It remains unclear in what direction the terrorists retreated, SANA news agency reported.
Similarly, on Friday, the Syrian fighter jets hit Daesh positions and struck one of the group's main training camps.
“The Syria warplanes bombed the ISIL strongholds in al-Badiyeh, al-Mayadin, al-Sobh and Abu Hammam in the Eastern territories of the province, which ended in the killing or wounding of many terrorists, destruction of over 10 vehicles and major damage on the militant group's training camp in the Eastern region,” the source said.
The Syrian army and popular forces have won back several strategic mountains in Latakia province in fierce battles fought against the militants in the past 24 hours, Iran’s Fars news agency wrote on Friday.
