9 October 2016 16:59


Syrian Army troops’ fresh round of anti-terrorism attacks in Western Ghouta pushed back militants from more positions in the Northern side of Khan al-Sheih, inflicting a heavy death toll on the terrorists, media sources said Sunday.

“Syrian military forces stormed terrorists’ positions in the Northern side of Khan al-Sheih and took control over the neighborhood of al-A’azam mosque and several buildings in the town from the direction of Daroushe and Banayat al-Tah’touh,” the sources said.

In relevant developments in the province on Saturday, the Syrian army and its allies regained control of the strategic town of Elhameh in Western Ghouta of Damascus after several days of fierce clashes with the terrorist groups.

The government troops entered Elhameh town, accompanied by the local tribal leaders, and seized back control of the entire town.

The people of Elhameh had been staging protest rallies against the terrorist groups in the past few days, calling on them to lay down weapons or leave the town.

Meantime, the Russian defense ministry announced that the number of the towns and regions joining the national reconciliation plan in Syria reached 738.
