ISIS terrorists have repeatedly changed a location of hostages to make it difficult to rescue them.
The Syrian army has started the rescue operation after an exact location had been found. The Russian military advisors have reportedly been involved in the planning of the operation.
At least 8 ISIS terrorists were killed and one jihadist was captured during clashes near Humeimim village. A number of militants’ vehicles were destroyed. The reports claim no SAA soldier was killed or injured.

Unfortunately three hostages were killed in a shootout. Marwa Issam al Abaza and two brothers Kasi Jawat Abu Omar and Raafat Naashat Abu Omar were allegedly used by terrorists as human shields.
