    Syrian government forces killed at least 25 ISIL militants near the traditionally Christian town of Sadad in the Homs province, a military source said Tuesday.

    DAMASCUS (Sputnik) — According to the source, artillery and aircraft are heavily involved in ongoing clashes near occupied Mheen.

    "Clashes are near [the town of] Mheen. The army has eliminated over 25 Islamic State militants and a convoy of six trucks with heavy machine guns," the source told RIA Novosti.

    After the terrorists had captured Mheen on Sunday, the Christian population of the nearby Sadad fled the town, fearing an Islamist attack.
