The Syrian army has made major advances in two strategic towns in Reef (countryside of) Damascus in Southern Syria in recent days, sources said.
“The Syrian army units made simultaneous advances in Dara’a and Zulmaka in Reef Damascus in Southern Syria,” an informed military source told FNA in Damascus on Tuesday.
The source said following advances by the Syrian army in Dara’a, the army is now in full control over the battlefield conditions and tens of the rebels’ concentration centers have been destroyed during the military operations in the region.
The conflict in Syria started in March 2011, when sporadic pro-reform protests turned into a massive insurgency following the intervention of western and regional states.
The unrest, which took in terrorist groups from across Europe, the Middle-East and North Africa, has transpired as one of the bloodiest conflicts in recent history.
As the foreign-backed insurgency in Syria continues without an end in sight, the US government has boosted its political and military support to Takfiri extremists.
Washington has remained indifferent to warnings by Russia and other world powers about the consequences of arming militant groups.
