The Syrian troops killed tens of terrorists and injured dozens more in fierce clashes over controlling the Malaha town. They also destroyed several vehicles of the militants equipped with machine guns.
Also in the past 24 hours, the Syrian army destroyed the gathering centers of the terrorists in the town of Talbiseh in Homs province, leaving a number of terrorists dead or injured as well as destroying their vehicles.
Meantime, other units continued targeting concentration centers of terrorists in al-Sandakhieh, Jub Habl, Oum Suhaireej, and Mannoukh villages in the Eastern countryside of Homs province.
Elsewhere, the Syrian army targeted the terrorists’ concentration centers in Flita barrens in Qalamoun, inflicting heavy losses upon them.
Meantime, the Syrian army forces moped up parts of Southwestern Syria from Takfiri militants.
The Syria military flushed out militants belonging to the so-called al-Nusra Front from two strategic hills on the Eastern slopes of al-Zabadani after fierce clashes with the foreign-backed militants.
At least seven militants were killed in the clashes in Tal Al-Saroukha (Rocket Hill) and Tal Al-Hawa (Windy Hill) hills.
A Syrian soldier was reportedly killed and another one sustained injuries in the clashes as well.
Elsewhere, the foreign-backed Takfiri militants suffered major losses in the countryside of Idlib province, as the Syrian army continued to gain more advances in its fight against the armed groups.
The army troops stormed the hideouts of the terrorists in the areas of al-Maraneh, Job al-Ahmar, al-Kastan Grotto, Qmeinas, Kou al-Shighre in Idlib countryside, leaving dozens of them dead and injured.
According to a recent report by the UN, over 220,000 people, including thousands of children, have been killed due to the ongoing crisis in Syria. Nearly 4 million Syrians have left their country since the beginning of the crisis, and 7.6 million civilians have been internally displaced.
Human rights groups and humanitarian relief agencies from around the world have unanimously criticized the global policymakers, the United Nations Security Council in particular, for failing to take decisive and unified action to resolve the ongoing and massive humanitarian crisis in Syria.
The Takfiri militants who have wreaked havoc across Syria are backed by the US and its western and regional allies as part of attempts to overthrow Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
