The Syrian army regained control over two strategic factories in the Southern parts of the country on Sunday.

The army units purged the terrorists from Al-Bashkir and Al-Sana’at Al-Hadiseh factories in Al-Dukhaniye town in Damascus countryside.

Meantime, other army units defused the bombs and mines planted by the terrorists in Al-Jabaviyeh district and Al-Hassan street as well as the surrounding areas of Rim Al-Zabi Drugstore in Al-Khazan district.

The Syrian army units are expected to declare full control over these regions in the coming hours.

A military source said on Saturday that the Syrian soldiers stormed the hideouts of the militants in Kanaker, Beit Jann, al-Dukhaniye, Jobar and al-Qalamoun in the countryside of Damascus.

Scores of Syrian and non-Syrian insurgents including Riyad al-Qasir, Fadi Laqis, Mohammad al-Samadi, Abdullah al-Matiri (from Saudi Arabia), Jamal Baidoun, Mohammad Saqraq were killed in the operations.

Syria has been the scene of massive fighting between the government of President Bashar al-Assad along with the country’s armed forces with foreign-backed extremist groups since 2011 when the western countries and their regional allies’ meddling triggered an over three-year-long civil war in the Middle-Eastern country.

Based on the UN statistics, the country’s death toll has passed 190,000, while millions of civilians have been displaced both inside and outside of Syria.
