IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Damascus, Oct 21, IRNA -- The Syrian armed forces recaptured Al-Quaryatayn town in central Syria from takfiri terrorist group Daesh, Syrian news agency SANA reported.

'The Syrian Army, in cooperation with allied forces, on Saturday restored security and stability to al-Quaryatayn city in the southeastern countryside of Homs after the elimination of ISIS [Daesh] terrorist group which earlier infiltrated into the city,' according to SANA.

'The military engineering units, according to the reporter, removed the explosive devices and mines planted by ISIS [Daesh] terrorists in houses, streets, squares and governmental institutions in the city.'

'Last September 27, about 300 ISIS terrorists moved from the areas close to al-Rukban to the city of Al-Quaryateen in the southeastern countryside of Homs using dozens of SUVs vehicles. ISIS [Daesh] terrorists benefited of the highly accurate coordinates obtained through aerial reconnaissance of the US-led international alliance.'
