At least 70 pro-government fighters and ISIS terrorists have been killed in clashes in central Syria since the beginning of 2021, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) reported on January 10.
“The SOHR has documented, since the beginning of the current year 2021, the killing of 44 members and officers of the regime forces and the militias loyal to them, as a result of ambushes, bombings and attacks by ISIS operatives in the Syrian Badia,” the SOHR said in a report. “The organization [ISIS] lost at least 25 of its members due to Russian airstrikes and clashes.”
Recently, ISIS cells in the central region stepped up their attacks. Earlier this week, the terrorists launched a large attack on government forces in the eastern countryside of Hama.
In the course of the attack, the terrorists captured a number of positions from government forces near the towns of al-Shakusiyah and Rahjan.
According to the SOHR, 15 Syrian soldiers and officers went missing during the attack, which claimed the lives of 19 pro-government fighters and 12 terrorists.
Heavy clashes are still ongoing in eastern Hama as government forces have been working to secure the area. Over the last 24 hours, 40 Syrian and Russian airstrikes hit gatherings and equipment of ISIS in the region.
In a separate development, ISIS cells destroyed a pickup of the al-Quds Brigade, a Palestinian pro-government group, in the eastern Homs countryside with an improvised explosive device.
Hundreds of ISIS terrorists hide in the Homs desert in the heart of the central region. The terrorists reportedly buy logistic and military supplies from US-backed fighters based in the southeastern area of al-Tanf.
The situation in the central region will not improve without decisive measures from government forces and their allies.
