(FNA) ~ The Syrian Army troops and tribal fighters, in a rapid attack, pushed the ISIL back from al-Assad Hospital in the Western suburb of Deir Ezzur city and ended the terrorists’ hours-long control over part of the medical center, city sources said.

“The ISIL terrorists, who stormed the hospital on Saturday and captured part of it, were attacked by the Syrian soldiers and their tribal allies,” the sources said, adding, “The entire ISIL members were killed right on the spot.”

“The hospital is under the full control of the Syrian government forces,” the sources said.

“A number of physicians and medical staff, taken hostages by the ISIL, were freed in the army attack,” they added.

“The ISIL terrorists executed brutally some of the hostages before the army’s attack,” the sources went on to say.
