Syrian government soldiers have reportedly thwarted an attempt by Takfiri Daesh militants to establish a foothold in the Arab country’s beleaguered eastern city of Dayr al-Zawr, killing a large number of the terrorists in the process.
Army troops managed to push the extremists back as the latter mounted an offensive against Panorama neighborhood on the southern outskirts of the city, located 450 kilometers northeast of the capital, Damascus, on Sunday, Syria’s official news agency SANA reported.
