(MENAFN - Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)) Scores have been killed or injured on Saturday in clashes between insurgents of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) and Syrian troops in the vicinity of the Tabaqa Military Airport, the army's last remaining post in Raqqa governorate.

Five elements of the pro-regime National Defense Forces and 14 from ISIL were killed, while at least 150 others were injured in the clashes which erupted after a Syrian from the Islamic State detonated a car laden with explosives at the airport gate, said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, based in London.

Clashes are still on between the regime and loyal forces on one hand and the ISIL on the other.


Meanwhile, areas around the Airport have been shelled by the regime jetfighters and barrel bombs. An ISIL hospital and premises in the city of Tabaqa were also targeted by eight airstrikes from the Syrian air forces.

In the meantime, for the third day in a row, the General commission of Arab Palestinian Refugee in cooperation with UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) and the Palestinian Liberation Organization distributed today 497 food packages on the people in the Yarmouk Camp who are still besieged by the armed terrorist groups, south of Damascus.
