The Syrian Army troops continued their anti-ISIL operation in the Eastern direction of the town of al-Salamiyah and took control over two more regions, killing at least 60 terrorists.
The army men that drove ISIL out of Regions of 3, 4, 5 and 6 East of al-Salamiyah earlier today continued to hit terrorists and recapture the regions 7 and 8 after killing more than 60 terrorists.
The army soldiers are now advancing towards Region 9.
An army officer said that a large number of ISIL terrorists have fled towards the depth of Badiyeh (desert) as their front in Eastern Hama is on the verge on collapse.
Also, the army forces, supported by Russian and Syrian Air Force airstrikes, inflicted decisive blows on ISIL terrorists in the Eastern part of Salamiyah on Sunday as the military operation to expel terrorists from Hama province is underway.
The Syrian army’s missile and artillery units heavily pounded the positions and supply routes of ISIL in Eastern Salamiyah which resulted in the destruction of three military bases and death of a number of terrorists.
The Syrian and Russian air forces also struck tens of ISIL positions East of Salamiyah, inflicting heavy losses on the ISIL terrorists.
