Army Regains Control of Strategic Towns in Southern Syria
The Syrian army regained control over several towns controlled by the Al-Qaeda-linked militants in Southern Syria.
The Army units retook control of Bariqeh, Koudneh and Rasm Al-Shouli towns that had been controlled by the Al-Nusra Front militants in the Southern parts of the Muslim country after heavy clashes and street battles in several areas.
The recaptured towns were among the most important bases of the Al-Nusra Front in Southern Syria.
The Al-Nusra terrorists sustained huge military and human losses during the heavy clashes with the Syrian army.
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.
