At least 35 regime soldiers have been killed in clashes with Daesh terrorists in Syria’s western Homs province, according to local sources on Saturday.

The sources said a group of Daesh terrorists, who have been trapped in a desert area in Homs, engaged in clashes with Iran-backed militias, using hit-and-run tactics.

The Daesh militants also laid an ambush for regime forces patrolling nearby, the sources said.

Thirty-five soldiers were killed and dozens injured in exchange of fire between Daesh terrorists and regime forces, which came to save the Iran-backed militiamen, the sources said.

Daesh still has some presence in the Syrian desert after losing most of its strongholds in the war-torn country.
