Syrian govt. forces make more gains against militants


The Syrian army continues to gain more ground in its fight against foreign-backed militants in several areas across the country.

On Thursday, the Syrian army regained full control of Jabal Maheen al-Kabir area in the eastern countryside of Homs, following clashes with foreign-backed militants.

The army destroyed large caches of weapons and ammunitions used by the militants in the region.

On the same day, the army managed to restore security in the northeastern city of Qamishli.

The Syrian soldiers also inflicted heavy losses on the foreign-sponsored militants operating near the city of Aleppo and in the coastal city of Latakia, killing a large number of them.

On Wednesday, Syrian state television said that following days of clashes with militants “The army has taken town of Hujeira,” south of the capital Damascus.

On Tuesday, in the flashpoint city of Homs, Syrian troops seized several vehicles equipped with heavy machinegun and killed their drivers.

Also on Monday, the Syrian troops carried out a military operation against Takfiri militants in the key neighborhood of Barzeh, located north of Damascus, inflicting heavy losses on them.

On Sunday, Syrian soldiers regained full control of a strategic base, dubbed Base 80, near Aleppo International Airport.

Syria has been gripped by deadly unrest since 2011. According to reports, the Western powers and their regional allies — especially Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey — are supporting the militants operating inside Syria.

According to the United Nations, more than 100,000 people have been killed and millions displaced in the violence.

The UN recently warned against the humanitarian situation in Syria, saying that over nine million people are in need of urgent aid due to the crisis in the Middle Eastern country.
