The Syrian government forces repulsed ISIL’s offensive on Deir Ezzur airbase, killing and wounding tens of terrorists and seizing their weapons.
The ISIL launched an assault on Deir Ezzur military airport, targeting the Syrian army positions in several fronts with a huge number of Takfiri terrorists.
However, the Syrian army and popular forces thwarted the ISIL offensive and inflicted heavy losses upon the Takfiri terrorists.
According to a military source, the pro-government forces killed at least 30 militants, wounded scores of others and seized their weapons and ammunition.
Also on Wednesday, the Syrian army troops repelled the ISIL’s similar attack on the government forces’ positions in two different fronts and killed or wounded scores of them.
The ISIL attempts to prevail over the pro-government forces’ strongholds near the village of al-Jafreh and the strategic Deir Ezzur airbase were fended off by the strong defense of the Syrian soldiers.
In the meantime, the Syrian fighter jets hit the ISIL combatants’ positions heavily to prevent their advances in al-Jafreh and Deir Ezzur airbase, which claimed the lives of several militants and changed the scene of battles to the benefit of the Syrian army.
The ISIL’s military equipment and vehicles were also destroyed in the unsuccessful attacks.
