It was not immediately clear if the airstrikes on areas including Mayadeen, Boukamal, Bouleil, Bouomar and Mushassan were carried out by the Russians or the USA -led coalition.

Islamic State (IS) militants have recaptured the town of Al-Qaryatayn in the eastern countryside of Homs Province in central Syria, pro-government al-Watan online daily reported Saturday evening.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Saturday the strikes were carried out on the town of Amanaz, located in Idlib province near the Turkish border.

Syria's conflict has killed more than 330,000 people and displaced millions since it broke out in 2011. The attacks on Thursday targeted government forces around Deir Ezzor and on their supply lines through the Sukhna area from the west.

Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Maj.

Konashenkov said the militants suffered "the most serious losses in months" and that their capability has been significantly diminished. He added that the dead and wounded included 16 field commanders.

Damascus, Sep 30 (Prensa Latina) Syrian army units and their allies have reopened the road between the city of Palmyra and Deir Ezzor, which was closed after terror attacks by the Islamic State (IS) or Daesh on army positions, military sources said today.

Russian Federation joined Syria's war on September 30, 2015, tipping the balance of power in favor of President Bashar Assad's forces.

Rescue workers have said, however, that Syrian and Russian airstrikes have killed scores of civilians since September 19, when insurgents launched an offensive against government-controlled areas in northwestern Syria.
