Late on November 5, ISIS terrorists attacked a position of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) on the main road between the ancient city of Palmyra in eastern Homs and the town of Resafa in southern Raqqa.
According to Istanbul-based Syria TV, the terrorists targeted the army’s position with a number of anti-tank guided missiles.
“As a result of the attack, three personnel of regime forces were killed and eight others of the 5th Corps were injured,” a source told the channel, “they were transferred to Palmyra’s Military Hospital.”
Following the attack, warplanes of the Russian Aerospace Forces carried out four airstrikes on ISIS hideouts in the al-Amour Mount, south of Palmyra.
A day earlier, ISIS terrorists attacked a vehicle of the SAA west of the town of al-Mayadin in the southern Deir Ezzor countryside. The group’s news agency, Amaq, claimed that several soldiers were killed or injured.
ISIS terrorists are launching these attacks from their strongholds in the central region, the Homs desert. The desert lays between eastern Homs and western Deir Ezzor.
The recent wave of attacks confirms that the ISIS terrorists are receiving support. Recent reports revealed that U.S.-backed fighters in the southeastern area of al-Tanaf are selling supplies to the group.
