Supported By Russian Warplanes, Syrian Army Repels Large ISIS Attack In Eastern Homs

On July 2, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) repelled a large attack of ISIS terrorists on its positions in the eastern Homs countryside.

According to the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the terrorists clashed with army troops for several hours. Warplanes of the Russian Aerospace Forces (VKS) provided a close air support to the army by targeting nearby ISIS positions.

“Russian warplanes helped repel the attack by carrying out intense airstrikes on the organization’s [ISIS] positions,” the monitoring group’s report reads.

The offensive was apparently launched from the Homs desert, where hundreds of ISIS commanders and fighters are reportedly hiding.

Last week, ISIS terrorists killed two Syrian soldiers and injured a third in eastern Homs. Back then, the VKS responded with a series of airstrikes on the terrorist group’s positions in the Homs desert.

The VKS became highly active against ISIS remnants in central Syria in the last few months. Recent satellite images revealed that several Russian and Syrian warplanes were deployed in Deir Ezzor to support the ongoing operations against ISIS in the region.
