The Syrian Air Force has pounded ISIS targets in the province of Homs. According to reports, government warplanes have delivered over 20 airstrikes near the ancient city of Palmyra and the Tyas Airbase, destroying 7 units of military equipment and an unknown number of the terrorist group’s members.
Meanwhile, the Syrian army and the National Defense Forces have repelled another ISIS advance on the Tyas Airbase. The goal of government forces in the area is to build a larger buffer zone near the strategic airbase in order to secure it and its supply lines from attacks. ISIS terrorists aim to prevent this. Pro-government sources say that 23 ISIS members were killed in the recent clashes.
