Syrian Army troops continued to hit ISIL’s strongholds on the Eastern side of al-Salamiyah and captured two more key heights in the region to reinvigorate security of oil pipelines.
The Syrian soldiers inflicted tens of casualties on the ISIL terrorists and pushed them back from the heights Rami 1 and 2 and Salim 1 and 2.
The Syrian army also targeted four bomb-laden suicide vehicles of the ISIL before reaching government forces’ positions along al-Mofaker-Aqarib road near the newly-liberated oil pipelines in the province.
Reports said earlier today that Syrian Army troops and National Defense Forces struck ISIL’s positions along the main oil pipeline in Eastern Hama and forced the Takfiri militants to retreat from the region.
The Syrian government forces jointly continued to move eastward into the desert area of al-Salamiyah, taking control of ISIL-held strategic points along the oil pipeline.
The ISIL suffered a heavy death toll and its military equipment sustained major damage in the attacks
