Syria: Gov’t Forces Push Terrorists back from more Lands East of Damascus
The Syrian government forces struck defense lines of the militant groups in the small town of al-Bahariyeh and captured a school and a communication tower in the town.
The terrorist groups left behind scores of the dead and wounded members and fled the battlefield to evade more casualties.
Reports said on Sunday that the Syrian Army troops and popular forces launched more attacks on terrorist groups’ strongholds in Eastern Ghouta to pave the ground for pushing the militants back from Mayda’a and Hawsh al-Farah regions.
“Early this morning, the Syrian government forces targeted Hawsh al-Dawahirah and Hawsh Nasri South of Hawsh al-Fara with heavy artillery and short-range missiles to prevent potential reinforcements of militants into Hawsh al-Farah,” the sources said, adding, “Dozens of Jeish al-Islam fighters have been seriously wounded when the army blew off several entrenches dug to the North of Mayda’a.”
