Daesh captured the town of Al-Qaryatayn late yesterday [Sunday night] following a two-day siege,” the sources told Anadolu Agency on condition of anonymity due to security concerns.

Sources added that regime forces deployed in the town had been thrown into disarray — and forced to beat a hasty retreat — after Daesh militants successfully infiltrated their ranks.

Scores of regime forces were killed and injured in the ensuing melee, they said, adding that Daesh had executed a dozen regime soldiers in the town’s main square after the fighting.

Meanwhile, clashes between regime forces and Daesh terrorists reportedly remain ongoing in the nearby Al-Sokhna and Al-Taiba areas and in Palmyra city in Homs’s eastern countryside.

In early April, regime forces captured Al-Qaryatayn following fierce clashes with Daesh that resulted in casualties on both sides.  Read more
