The Syrian army has repelled a powerful attack by militants of the ISIS terrorist group (banned in Russia) in the east of Homs province, the Syrian national agency SANA reported Thursday.
The Syrian forces are continuing the operation to retake the town of As Sukhnah in the Homs province, where the ISIS largest stronghold is located. The army in cooperation with its allies have surrounded the town and started to mop up the outskirts.
Syria has been in the state of civil war for six years, with government forces fighting against both Syrian opposition groups who strive to overthrow President Bashar Assad, and numerous extremist and terrorist groups such as the ISIS.
