TEHRAN (FNA)- Military sources said that the Syrian Army’s Regiment 137th defended its base against the ISIL Takfiri terrorists in the Eastern province of Deir Ezzur, and killed at least 29 of them.
The sources said that the Regiment 137th Base, whose position is on top of the Al-Thardeh Mountains to the Northwest of Deir Ezzur city, was attacked by the ISIL but the Syrian soldiers foiled their infiltration attempts and killed 29 fighters.
The ISIL Takfiri terrorists currently control shrinking swathes of Syria and Iraq. They have threatened all communities, including Shiites, Sunnis, Kurds, Christians, Ezadi Kurds and others, as they continue their atrocities in Iraq.
Senior Iraqi officials have blamed Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and some Persian Gulf Arab states for the growing terrorism in their country.
The ISIL has links with Saudi intelligence and is believed to be indirectly supported by the Israeli regime.
