Military Expert: Syrian Army Speeding Up Military Operations along Homs-Damascus Road
A prominent military expert announced on Wednesday that the Syrian army has accelerated its military operations against the Takfiri terrorists in multiple fronts to prevent the blockade of Homs-Damascus road.
“The Syrian army has intensified its attacks from several directions on Homs-Damascus road to prevent the road’s closure and help release people from Jeish al-Islam terrorist group’s captivity,” Retired Lebanese Army General and Military Expert Ali Maqsoud told FNA on Wednesday.
The military strategist, meantime, said that the Syrian army has destroyed over 85 percent of Jeish al-Islam’s positions, facilities and command posts in Eastern Ghouta.
He, meantime, said that the terrorists have locked up the civilians they have taken as hostage and put them in cages on the houses’ rooftops.
Jeish al-Islam has captured a group of people and army officers; they have been locked up in cages on roofs to prevent airstrikes by the Syrian and Russian warplanes.
On October 29, another military expert said that the foreign-backed terrorists fighting against President Bashar al-Assad’s government had lost over one third of their militants in battles across Syria.
“The terrorists have lost over 35 percent of their militants as a result of the Russian airstrikes and intensified Syrian army attacks in the past four weeks,” the Arabic-language al-Akhbariya TV quoted Syrian military strategist Salim Harba as saying.
Harba reiterated that the terrorists have been substantially weakened in the past month.
“The Takfiri terrorists have lost over 65 percent of their commanders and over 60 percent of their arms and ammunition depots as well as over 50 percent of their command and control centers,” the Syrian military expert added.
