Syrian Army Tightens Noose around ISIL Gunmen in Quneitra


Syrian military units on Wednesday continued military operations against the terrorist organizations across the country, targeting their positions and destroying more of their dens, state-run SANA news agency reported.

In Quneitra, army forces destroyed dens of terrorists, killing scores of them and injuring others, mainly in the towns of Um Batina, Mas’hara and Ovania in the countryside of Quneitra southern province.

In Homs, an army unit killed all members of an armed terrorist group northeast of al-Tarfawi in the eastern countryside of Homs central province.

Syrian military has been chasing terrorist groups and militia gunmen operating across the country since mid-March 2011, when the state had been hit by a violent opposition.

The Syrian government accuses Western and other countries, mainly Turkey and Saudi Arabia of orchestrating the crisis and supporting terrorists with money, weapons and mercenary fighters.
