 Syrian army forces have carried out a series of successful mop-up operations against Takfiri militants across the country, media reports say. -------

A military source, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the Syrian troops stormed terrorist hideouts in the town of Job al-Ahmar, located about 48 kilometers (29 miles) northeast of the western port city of Latakia, on Saturday. ---

---- About 300 terrorists were killed in the clashes, Syria’s official news agency SANA reported. The self-proclaimed commander of the so-called 1st Coastal Brigade, identified by the nom de guerre, Khaled Aous, was among the slain militants. The Syrian source added that vehicles used by terrorists and a considerable amount of munitions were also destroyed during the operation. --

- Separately, nearly 20 members of the ISIS Takfiri militants were killed when Syrian forces repelled an assault on the Deir ez-Zor military airport. A ISIS commander, identified by the nom de guerre as Abu Yusuf al-Iraqi, was among the militants killed. -------

- Syrian soldiers also launched separate clean-up operations across the western-central province of Hama. Militants were dealt a major blow in that operation as well. -------
