Government forces have killed dozens of foreign-backed Takfiri militants during a series of mop-up operations across Syria, the official SANA news agency says.

Military sources said Syrian army soldiers killed 14 members of the Jaysh al-Islam terrorist group during separate offensives in the Marj al-Sultan and al-Nashabiyeh villages near the capital.

Syrian army forces also launched an operation in the Jobar district of Damascus, killing 16 Jaysh al-Islam militants.

An unspecified number of Takfiri militants were killed as Syrian government forces raided a terrorist hideout in the town of Arbeen.

Elsewhere in the towns of al-Hadath and Hawarin in the western province of Homs, Syrian fighter jets attacked Daesh positions, destroying several pickup trucks with heavy machine guns mounted on them and a sizable cache of munitions.

Syrian military aircraft also pounded Daesh bases on the outskirts of the ancient city of Palmyra, located 215 kilometers (133 miles) northeast of Damascus, killing a large number of the extremists and destroying their ammunition.
