The Syrian soldiers and their Lebanese allies penetrated into the al-Nusra Front’s lines of defense in Serghaya village and then targeted the terrorists’ positions inside Serghaya, while the Syrian army targeted the terrorist group’s gatherings at Jaroud Jarajeer and Jaroud Qarah border-crossings.
Serghaya is located just North of Al-Zabadani and was originally part of the 4-month-long ceasefire deal.
However, al-Nusra Front and their rebel allies have taken advantage of the ceasefire by swelling their numbers along the Syria-Lebanon border.
In relevant developments near Syria-Lebanon border last week, Syrian Army troops and Hezbollah fighters advanced towards the terrorist groups’ strongholds in Western Ghouta and completed a wide circle of forces around the militants near two main towns in the region.
“The Syrian government forces cut off the communication lines of the terrorist groups in Darayya and Mo’adhamiyeh regions and laid complete siege on the militant groups in this strategic region near the capita,” the sources said.
“The terrorist groups have been trapped in the circle of the Syrian forced around Darayya and Mo’adhamiyeh,” the sources added.
“In the meantime, the terrorist groups’ mortar and missile units once again violated the truce and shelled the Darayya’s districts several time,” the sources said, adding, “The government forces opened retaliatory fire at the terrorist groups and launched a fresh round of cleansing operation in the region and successfully destroyed the terrorist groups’ launching pads of missiles and mortars.”
