The Syrian Army and the country’s National Defense Force have destroyed militant groups’ positions in a spate of provinces across Syria in the past 24 hours.
Backed by the Syrian Air Force, the country’s Army and the National Defense Force (NDF) have clamped down on the terrorists’ positions in a whole array of provinces all across Syria for the past 24 hours, according to the Iranian news agency FARS.
“At least 70 militants were eliminated and over 60 more injured as a result of airstrikes of the Syrian Air Force against Daesh (ISIL/ISIS) command posts in the regions of Jeb Ghabsha, Al-Bab…in Aleppo province,” a military source was quoted by FARS as saying.
In Daraa, the terrorist also suffered heavy losses after the Syrian warplanes along with the Syrian Artillery units pounded Daesh’s positions in the towns of Busra, Tafas, Aqrabaa and Jemree.
In separate development, the army launched offensive on the Daesh and Al-Nusra terrorists’ strongholds based in the northern and southeastern parts of the Homs province, where scores of them were killed and wounded.
Military sources also reported about Daesh terrorists suffering heavy casualties in the army’s attacks on the terrorists’ positions based in the eastern districts of the capital city of Damascus as well as the western province of Latakia.
“The Syrian Army in cooperation with the NDF established control over Sheir al-Qaboa, al-Amouli Mountain and Point 422 after heavy clashes with the militants in the region, and inflicted heavy casualties on them,” the sources said.
Syria has been mired in a civil war since 2011, with government forces loyal to President Bashar Assad fighting opposition factions and terrorist groups such as Daesh and the Al-Nusra Front, which are banned in Russia.
Adding to the Syrian Army’s anti-terror effort is Russia’s ongoing air campaign in Syria which was launched on September 30, when more than fifty Russian warplanes, including Su-24M, Su-25 and Su-34 jets, commenced precision airstrikes on Daesh and Al-Nusra Front targets in Syria at the behest of Syrian President Bashar Assad.
In addition, the Russian Defense Ministry confirmed earlier this month that advanced, super-maneuverable Su-35S multi-role fighters had begun their combat mission in Syria
