On October 23, ISIS terrorists ambushed a convoy of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) in the eastern Homs countryside in the country’s central region.
The SAA’s convoy was moving on the M20 highway between the ancient city of Palmyra and Deir Ezzor city when it fell into an ambush set by the terrorists. The convoy was targeted with heavy machine guns.
ISIS’ news agency, Amaq, claimed that three military vehicles were damaged in the course of the ambush. A number of Syrian service members were allegedly killed or injured.
The terrorist group stepped up its attacks in central Syria recently. Five days ago, the terrorists launched a large attack on SAA positions in eastern Hama. Clashes are still ongoing in the region. Over 50 terrorists and service members have been killed so far.
ISIS terrorists are moving out from their stronghold, the Homs desert. They are actively working to expand their control in the central region.
The SAA and its allies have, so far, prevented ISIS from making any ground gains. However, more efforts will be need to fully neutralize the terrorist group’s remnants in the central region.
