Syrian Jets Bomb Daesh Positions in Deir Ez-Zor
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Syria’s warplanes continued to hit the positions of Daesh (ISIL or ISIS) terrorists in the western province of Deir ez-Zor, killing and injuring large groups of them.
On Monday, Syrian bombers heavily pounded the gathering centers of Daesh militants near Ghassan Abboud area in Deir ez-Zor, Syria's official news agency, SANA, reported.
During the raids, dozens of the terrorists were killed and a number of their vehicles destroyed.
In a separate development on Monday, the Syrian government forces launched a major attack against Takfiri militants from the Jabhat Fateh al-Sham terrorist group, formerly known as al-Nusra Front, in the Arab country's southwestern city of Dara'a, inflicting massive losses on them.
The offensive came after the army troops managed to repel a string of attacks by the Takfiri militants against their positions in the areas of al-Manshiyeh, Hamida al-Taher, Bosra square, and al-Moassaseh.
Syria has been gripped by civil war since March 2011 with various terrorist groups, including Daesh (also known as ISIS or ISIL), currently controlling parts of it.
According to a report by the Syrian Center for Policy Research, the conflict has claimed the lives of over 470,000 people, injured 1.9 million others, and displaced nearly half of the country’s pre-war population of about 23 million within or beyond its borders.
