Reinforcements arrived in Deir Ezzor airport east of Syria on Friday for the national military following the gunmen attack on Thursday.
Airport is still under the control of the Syrian army without any progress by the so-called ‘Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’ (ISIL) terrorist group.
Army units also destroyed four vehicles of ISIL in the airport area by smart rockets.
All of the gunmen inside the vehicles were killed.
Syria was hit by a violent unrest since mid-March 2011, where the state accuses west and Arab countries, mainly Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar of orchestrating the attacks against the Syrian people and army.
