Syrian army says gas field retaken


The Syrian army yesterday claimed it recaptured a gas field east of the central city of Homs that was seized by hardline Islamic State fighters earlier this month. Syrian television showed footage of soldiers deploying in a desert area that was said to be the Sha'ar gas field. The army said in a statement that it retook the field after a "precise operation in which dozens of terrorists were killed."
