Scores of Insurgents Killed by Syrian Army in Deir Ezzur Province
The Eastern Province of Deir Ezzur has been the scene of bloody clashes between the rebel groups and the Syrian soldiers, who have gained the upper hand against the foreign-backed enemies in recent months.
An informed military source in the province said that scores of militants were killed and wounded in the Syrian army’s operations, and meantime, huge amounts of rebels’ weapons and ammunition depots were targeted in al-Tharda Mountain in Deir Ezzur, which borders the Iraqi crisis-hit Anbar province.
Syria has been the scene of insurgency since 2011 when certain western powers and their regional allies voiced loudly that Syrian protests have no diplomatic solution and they started supplying the country’s opposition groups with their arms and funds.
Since 2014, specially after victory of President Bashar al-Assad in the country’s presidential election in summer, the army has gained upper hand in its anti-terrorism campaign, and has been partly successful in sealing borders with Turkey and Jordan.
