At least 19 ISIS fighters were killed Wednesday in a failed attack on an Alawite village in the central Syrian province of Homs, an activist group said.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, an activist group, said three pro-regime militants were also killed repelling the attack on the village of Jub al-Jarah.
The Britain-based group said the attack on the village in the northeast of the province came early Wednesday, with violent clashes breaking out after the extremists tried to storm the area.
“National Defense Forces and other pro-regime militias battled IS fighters with each side shelling the other,” said the Observatory.
