Damascus

The Syrian Army troops launched fresh attacks on the remaining pockets of ISIL terrorists and drove them completely out of Hajar al-Aswad region after a humanitarian ceasefire ended in the Southern part of Damascus province on Monday.

The army men resumed operations against the ISIL terrorists trapped in a small area North of Hajar al-Aswad and freed the entire buildings in Hajar al-Aswad after a humanitarian truce ended.

The army’s artillery and missile units and aircraft had pounded the remaining positions of ISIL in Hajar al-Aswad and paved way for the army’s rapid advance.

Local sources reported that Hajar al-Aswad region is now under the full control of the army men.

Idlib

The Turkish Army dispatched a new convoy of military equipment to Southeastern Idlib on Monday to reinvigorate its occupying forces in the country.

A long convoy of Turkish army vehicles moved towards Southeastern Idlib via Talmans settlement.

The convoy that included several military, armored vehicles and trucks entered al-Sarman region which is home to the sixth truce monitoring point of the Turkish soldiers.

Militant-affiliated sources reported that dispatch of the fresh convoy was aimed at reinvigorating the Turkish forces in the region.

Homs

The Russian reconciliation Center for Syria announced in a statement on Monday that its members have discovered depots of arms and ammunition produced in NATO member-states in the territories liberated from terrorist groups in Northern Homs.

“We are in the Za’afaraniyeh settlement in Homs province at an Al-Nusra front (also known as Fatah al-Sham Front or the Levant Liberation Board) observation post. We can see here a large number of gas masks, weapons produced abroad, for example, TOW-2 anti-tank guided missiles. The facilities are very well-equipped,” the center’s representative Andrey Nekipelov said.

According to the statement, the officers are also revealing underground tunnels that are equipped with medical complexes as well as detention facilities for civilians.

Syrian sappers continue to de-mine settlements in the liberated areas, the center added.

Dara’a

The Syrian Army gave another ultimatum to the terrorist groups in Dara’a province to lay down their arms and surrender to the government forces as the armed forces are preparing for an imminent operation in the region.

The Syrian Army troops are preparing for an imminent operation in the Southern province of Dara’a as the government forces are completing the capture of Hajar al-Aswad and Yarmouk Camp in the Southern part of Damascus province.

Anti-terrorism operation in Dara’a province stands atop the army’s agenda, a military source said, adding that the army is preparing its forces and military equipment for an imminent operation in the Southern province.

In the meantime, the army’s helicopters dropped surrender-now leaflets over the terrorist-held regions, including the town of Basr al-Harir and al-Harak and al-Sowrah settlements in Eastern Dara’a, calling on the militants to join peace plan and return to normal life.
