The Syrian Army and Armed Forces units, in cooperation with allies, achieved a new advance in pursuing the ISIL terrorists in the depth of the Syrian Badiya desert by establishing a perimeter around al-Hael oil field in the eastern countryside of Palmyra in Homs province.
A military source told SANA on Wednesday that army units are now 1 km away from al-Hael field in the countryside of Palmyra, and are encircling the hideouts of ISIL terrorists in the field from the west, south, and southeast.
An Army and Armed Forces unit targeted with artillery fire ISIL gatherings and movements in al-Bghiliyeh village in the western countryside of Deir Ezzor, killing a number of terrorists from ISIL and destroying one of their vehicles.
