Sources in the Syrian armed opposition said the Syrian army tanks entered the Thiyabiya and Husseinia suburbs, a Palestinian refugee camp, Reuters news agency reported.
Control over the two points, located between the main motorways leading to Jordan – strengthens the grip of the Syrian army on the basic supplies routes and constitutes a pressure on the insurgents, Reuters said.
A military source said a Syrian army unit engaged with an infiltration attempt by an armed group from the Lebanese territory through the village Baroha towards Zara in Talkalakh countryside, leaving militiamen between killed and wounded.
Army also seized some of the gunmen weapons, at a time military units were targeting insurgents assembly points in Al-Qarabis and Bab Hood, as well as near al-Dar al-Kabira in Homs.
Moreover, the Syrian army foiled an attempt by militants to infiltrate into Salah al-Din neighborhood of Aleppo, and inflicted them losses in lives and materiel.
The Syrian national military launched a wide-scale military operation in May 2013 in the country’s main provinces to restore security and release citizens from terrorist threats.
Syria was hit by a violent unrest since mid-March 2011, where the Syrian government accuses foreign actors of orchestrating the conflict by supporting the militant opposition groups with arms and money.
