The Syrian Army and National Defense Forces (NDF) resisted an attack by Daesh in a rural area in the Eastern part of Hama province following an intense fight.

"The Syrian army troops and their allies thwarted the ISIL attempt to infiltrate into the defense lines of the government forces in al-Mab'ujah village in Salamiyah district," Fars News Agency reported the army as saying.

The army further said that Syrian army artillery units heavily bombed the militants' strongholds near the villages of al-Qahira, Tal Wasit, al-Mansoura and al-Ziyarah and the regions of al-Dellak and al-Sathiyat across Hama province, resulting in a major death toll for the terrorists.

Syrian army troops attacked the terrorist groups' defense lines in Suran, killing and wounding tens of terrorists.

The terrorist groups' military automobiles and equipment were also demolished in the attack, an army source told FNA.
