Army units in cooperation with the allies established control over the hills overlooking northeastern Palmyra in Homs central province and continued chasing down ISIS terrorists in the area, reports SANA.
Earlier, army units foiled an attack by ISIS terrorists on a number of military posts in the area of al-Tafha in the eastern countryside of Homs, seizing huge amounts of their arms and ammunition.
A military source told SANA that army units clashed on Tuesday at dawn with ISIS-affiliated terrorist groups that attacked a number of the military posts in al-Tafha hills, 70 km east of Homs City.
The source added that the attack was completely foiled and two of the machinegun-equipped vehicles were destroyed, in addition to killing and injuring a number of terrorists while their remnants fled away leaving their arms and ammunition behind.
Army units also combed the axis of the attack in search for car bombs and landmines, seizing large amounts of arms and ammunition that were left by terrorists before they fled away.
