The General Command of the Army and the Armed Forces announced that units of the Syrian army seized Saturday morning full control over al-Zara town and its surrounding in the western countryside of Homs city after carrying out a special accurate operation in cooperation with the national defense forces and honorable residents.
The General Command stressed in a statement that large numbers of takfiri mercenary terrorists, who had used the area of al-Zareh as a springboard for their criminal operations against safe citizens, were killed.
“This success made by our armed forces is of significance due to the geographic position of al-Zara town as it overlooks the international highway linking the Central and Coastal regions and had been used as a main passage for the terrorist groups which would come from Lebanon and head to neighboring areas to carry out their criminal operations,” the statement said.
The General Command affirmed the Armed Forces’ determination and resolve to continue its national and constitutional missions of eradicating and uprooting terrorism wherever it is.
The Command concluded its statement by pledging to continue shielding the homeland’s unity and preserving its dignity until security and stability is restored to it.
