Scores of ISIL militants were killed and many more were wounded in several hours of fierce clashes with the Syrian army.

Meanwhile, a suicide bomber who was trying to attack the Syrian army's military positions in Deir ez-Zur province was killed as he crossed a minefield only 200 meters away from his target.
