The Syrian army continued its advances in Eastern Ghouta in Damascus countryside and prevented the foreign-backed terrorists from fleeing the region.
The army units besieged the terrorists in Jobar district of Eastern Ghouta, killing tens of them in heavy clashes.

Also in the past 24 hours, the Syrian military sources rejected the western media reports that foreign-backed militant groups have captured the Northern city of Idlib.

The Reuters news agency on Monday reported that the Al-Nusra Front militants had entered Idlib city and captured a government building in there.

“The news by some western media sources that the terrorist groups had captured Idlib is not true and the Syrian troops have thwarted the attempt by the militants to seize the city,” a Syrian military source told FNA.

The military source noted that Al-Nusra Front-affiliated groups, assisted by Kataeb Jund Al-Aqsa terrorists, tried to capture Idlib by attacking the city from the Northwestern side.

He reiterated that the Syrian army killed three notorious commanders of the Al-Nusra Front in the clashes in Idlib and Idlib countryside.

Idlib has been under the control of the Syrian army for more than a year.

On Monday, the Syrian Army foiled an infiltration attempt by the al-Nusra Front terrorists into a government building in Idlib, killing and injuring dozens of them.

The army soldiers pushed out the al-Nusra terrorists as they attempted to infiltrate into a building in the Northern areas of Idlib, and managed to claim the lives of scores of them.

Kurdish forces liberated the Syrian city of Kobani bordering Turkey from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) terrorists.

Over the weekend Kurdish fighters switched to an offensive on the Takfiris, forcing them three miles from the city limits after capturing several key locations.

Kobani, also known as Ayn al-Arab, one of the largest towns in the Kurdish region of Syria bordering Turkey, has been under attack by ISIL militants for over a month. The siege has caused thousands of Kurds to flee for Turkey. According to the so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the fighting has claimed more than 800 victims, over half of them ISIL militants.

Meantime, Kurdish forces thwarted a new attempt by the ISIL terrorists to cut off the Kobani from the border with Turkey before Iraqi Kurdish reinforcements arrive.

Kurdish forces have been holding out for weeks against an ISIL offensive around Kobani, which has become a high-profile symbol of efforts to stop the terrorists’ advance.

The army soldiers pushed out the al-Nusra terrorists as they attempted to infiltrate into a building in the Northern areas of Idlib, and managed to claim the lives of scores of them.

The Syrian army continued its advances in many areas of Aleppo in the Northern parts of the country and seized back control over several strategic regions.

The army units regained full control over Al-Hosseynia, En Al-Jarn and Al-Vaviya towns in Aleppo countryside on Monday.

Tens of militants were killed and dozens more injured in heavy clashes with the army.
