Operations by the Syrian troops, backed by Russian airstrikes, in Homs have claimed the lives of 31 Daesh terrorists since late Thursday, the so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Saturday.
The clashes started in the night of Thursday to Friday with a terrorist assault on the army's positions near the town of Al-Sukhna, Observatory head Rami Abdel Rahman said, as cited by AFP.
Saturday's death toll is expected to rise because of the serious injuries of some casualties.
