The Syrian Army successfully repelled several IS attacks near the town of al-Qaryatayn in the eastern part of the Homs province.

Syrian government forces have successfully pushed back several attacks by IS militants near the town of al-Qaryatayn in the eastern part of the Homs province, a source in Homs militia told on Thursday.

"IS militants attacked several army positions near al-Qaryatayn… The military managed to repulse the attacks, after which the terrorists fled to mountain gorges," the source said.

The source added that about seven days ago, the terrorists intensified their efforts in the area and made several unsuccessful attempts to storm positions of the government forces.

IS militants took control of al-Qaryatayn, located some 120 kilometers (74.5 miles) west of Palmyra, in August 2015. The terrorists had been holding 168 Christian residents hostage and threatened to execute prisoners if army and militia began storming the city.
