Homs (SyriaNews.media) Syrian Army troops in the eastern countryside of Homs have extended their operations in the area, and captured new territories, after inflicting heavy human and material losses on the Islamic State terrorists, Syrian News reported on Monday.
A security source told SANA that Army troops extended their military operations in the eastern countryside of Homs, and recaptured Talat al-Medraj and three other areas southeast of Umm al-Sarj, in the eastern countryside of Homs.
Furthermore, military operations also resulted in the elimination of several members of the Islamic State group, as well as destroying their weapons and ammunition, the source added.
