The Syrian fighter jets bombed ISIL's machinegun-equipped positions to suppress the terrorists' fire power for the Army's upcoming operation in the Southeastern parts of Homs province, the army announced Monday.

"Intelligence units informed the country's air force that some of the ISIL strongholds have been equipped with heavy machineguns in the recent days," the army said.

"We also were informed by the intelligence sources that the ISIL has deployed some of its machinegun-equipped vehicles inside the defense trenches to change its defensive arrangement in the shortest time possible," the army said.

"The Syrian air fleet, utilizing its experienced pilots, tracked and targeted the mentioned strongholds of the ISIL in the Western part of the ancient Assyrian town of Quaryatayn, and inflicted heavy losses on them," the army went on to say.

Earlier reports said that the Syrian government forces have launched a fresh series of offensives against the ISIL defense lines in the Southeastern part of Homs province to capture the Maheen-Quaryatayn checkpoint to access the mountains near the ancient Assyrian town.

"The Syrian Army troops and the National Defense Forces (NDF), backed up by the Russian fighter jets, have launched their joint offensives in the Quaryatayn countryside to recapture the important Maheen-Quaryatayn checkpoint that is situated along the road leading to mountains overlooking Quaryatayn," the army said.

"The ISIL positions along the Maheen-Quaryatayn Road were targeted by the Syrian army's mortar shells, rockets, and the Russian Air Force’s fighter jets over the weekend to weaken the terrorist group’s resistance and resolve to hold Quaryatayn," the army added.

"Following the targeting of the ISIL centers with rockets, mortar shells and bombs the Syrian troops and their allies struck the terrorist group’s positions at the small hilltops overlooking the Maheen-Quaryatayn checkpoint; this resulted in violent exchange of fire which lasted for several hours. The pro-government forces finally seized these small collection of hills, the army added.
