Over 100 Al-Nusra Front Terrorists Killed by Syrian Army in Headquarters Blast in Damascus Province
The Syrian army’s special forces destroyed main command center of the Al-Nusra Front in Jobar region in Damascus countryside, killing at least 100 terrorists, Arabic-language media outlets reported.
In a relevant development on Saturday, the Syrian Air Force and military helicopters staged heavy assaults on terrorists’ defense lines and strongholds in Eastern Ghouta and in the Southwestern territories of Damascus province near the border with Lebanon.
The fighter jets bombed terrorists’ positions in Jobar and Ein Terma regions in Eastern Damascus, inflicting heavy casualties on the gunmen.
In the meantime, the choppers targeted the positions of Al-Nusra Front in the town of Beit Jinn, South-West of Damascus province, killing and wounding a number of terrorists.
Militant-affiliated news websites reported last week that the Syrian Army forwarded a long convoy of armored vehicles and tanks along with a large number of fresh soldiers to the last bastion of the terrorists in the Western part of Damascus province.
The websites reported that the army sent 21 tanks, 16 BMP armored vehicles and tens of military vehicles along with a large number of forces to areas surrounding the militant-held town of Beit Jinn in Western Damascus.
Beit Jinn has been considered as the last stronghold of the terrorists in the Western part of Damascus province after their comrades in Darayya endorsed a peace agreement with the army last year.
