    The Syrian army supported by allied militia units regained control over the key transport juncture northeast of the town of al Qaryatayn in the Homs province.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The government troops managed to liberate an area of almost 10 square miles from militant groups, Al Watan newspaper reported on Friday.

    According to Al-Mayadeen TV channel, a roadway to Homs located between al Qaryatayn and the T4 airbase was cleared with militants having suffered heavy losses and retreated.

    The Homs province is a battleground between the Syrian government and the Daesh terror group, outlawed in Russia and many other states.

    In December, Daesh recaptured the ancient city of Palmyra. According to various sources, the number of terrorists that took part in the storming of the city reached 5,000 including hundreds of suicide bombers and dozens of armored vehicles.
