The insurgents’ gathering centers were also targeted in the Southern province of Quneitra in a number of successful operations carried out by the army in which many of the rebels lost their lives in al-Khazragieh in Sa’sa’, al-Samadanieh al-Gharbieh, Rasm al-Shouli, and Jabata al-Khashab.

Syria has been the scene of massive fightings between the government of President Bashar al-Assad along with the country’s armed forces with foreign-backed extremist groups since 2011 when the western countries and their regional allies’ meddling triggered an over three-year-long civil war in the Middle-Eastern country.
Based on the UN statistics, the country’s death toll has passed 190,000, while millions of civilians have been displaced both inside and outside of Syria.
