Scores of ISIS terrorists were killed during Syrian Army operations on Wednesday.

According to the military sources from the eastern province of Deir Ez Zour, ISIS attempted to carry out an assault in the surrounding areas of the graveyards and Al Muwazafin neighborhood in Deir Ez Zour city.

However, their attempts were thwarted by units of the Syrian Army. 28 terrorists were killed and at least 30 were left wounded, in addition to destruction of a tank, 2 BMPs, 2 vehicles equipped with 23 mm machine-guns, all of which belonged to ISIS. A booby trapped bulldozer was seized by the army. 

Later, army units, backed by the Syrian Air Force, engaged in fierce clashes with ISIS terrorists after they attacked army checkpoints in the surrounding areas of of Deir Ez Zour Airport and Liwa Al Tamin, killing more than 20 terrorists.

New progress was reported in the eastern countryside of Aleppo province. Earlier on Wednesday, Tiger Forces special units managed to liberate the villages of Jirah Kabir and Daroubiyah.

This is a very important achievement as it means that the Syrian Army already entered the northern part of strategically important Maskanah Plains that link the provinces of Aleppo and Raqqah, following its withdrawal from the area back in the Summer of 2012.
