TEHRAN (FNA)- The Syrian Army said its soldiers and popular forces have advanced against the ISIL militants in the Eastern part of Homs province and have deployed their units around the town of Quaryatayn, adding that pro-government forces are readying to launch the final attack on the town.

The Syrian army, the Syrian Social Nationalist Party (SSNP) and the National Defense Forces (NDF) reached the Western side of Quaryatayn and surrounded the town from three sides, leaving the ISIL with only one route to flee the area.

The government forces are waiting for their allies from Liwa Suqour al-Sahra (Desert Hawks Brigade) and Dara’ Qalamoun (Qalamoun Shield) to capture the al-Mahsa Mountain to the South.

On Saturday, the Syrian air forces pounded the military hardware of the Takfiri terrorists in the eastern parts of Homs province, specially near Palmyra (also known as Tadmur).

The Syrian fighter jets destroyed ISIL's several military vehicles in the surrounding areas of Jabal al-Sha'er (Sha'er mountain) in Palmyra in Homs province, the Arab media outlets quoted an unnamed military source as saying.

Scores of ISIL militants were killed and wounded in the Syrian air force's strikes on their military positions, the reports said
