The SAA killed reportedly many ISIS fighters, destroyed two battle tanks and captured 2 other battle tanks and a BMP-1 armored vehicle during its advance.

Meanwhile, Russian warplanes and attack helicopters carried out strike on positions and vehicles of ISIS in the eastern Hama countryside as well as in the area northwest of the al-Sha’ar field in the eastern Homs countryside, according to opposition sources.

The SAA is now hundreds of meters away from besieging another ISIS-held area between the AL-Sha’ar field and Taybah village in the northeastern Homs countryside. However, ISIS fighter may already withdraw from the area because it is mostly an empty desert.

    do not kill them , but rather give them safe passage to idlib so they can kill eachother there or some may even cross back to turkey and let them fight somewhere else. Presently i guess these so called moderate terrorist are more dangerious.
