The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Wednesday that ISIS terrorists were no longer present anywhere in the province for the first time in three years.
The Britain-based monitoring group further noted that more than 400 ISIS mercenaries and nearly 190 Syrian soldiers and pro-government fighters had been killed during the battle for liberation.
Meanwhile, scores of ISIS terrorists have been killed and injured as Syrian air force fighter jets pounded their positions and vehicle convoys on the outskirts of Salamiyah city, located 33 kilometers southeast of Hama.
Syrian fighter jets also bombarded ISIS outposts in Mayadin city, located about 44 kilometers southeast of Dayr al-Zawr, and in the towns of Upper Boqrous, Jadeed Ekedat and al-Boleel.
Separately, the Syrian army and its allied forces managed to seize full control over several more positions and outposts near the country’s border with Jordan.
They retook control of nine border areas from Point 177 to Point 185, which were regarded as the main defense lines of foreign-sponsored terrorists in southern Syria.
