RNA - The ISIL terrorists sought to run away from an army-controlled region through al-Sa'an-Ithriya road towards areas controlled by al-Nusra Front (Tahrir al-Sham Hay'at or the Levant Liberation Board) in Idlib but they faced an ambush by the army units.
During the operation, 25 ISIL militants were held captive.
A military source said that 3 ISIL commanders are among the captives.
The Syrian army is now steamrolling through ISIL's last positions in Central Syria, liberating town after town around in the Eastern countryside of Homs and Hama.
The Syrian army troops hit ISIL terrorists' defense lines hard in Eastern Hama and imposed control over several villages.
The army units engaged in fierce clashes with ISIL in remaining regions that are still under the control of the terrorists in Eastern Hama.
