Victorious Syrian Army continues mop-up operations in Damascus district
The Syrian army is carrying on with its mop-up operations against the Takfiri terrrosts in the countryside of the capital Damascus.
Government troops succeeded in driving out the al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front terrorists from the Adra al-Balad district after fierce clashes on Saturday.
The army inflicted heavy losses on the Takfiri terrorists in the area and currently controls most parts of it.
Government forces have also started searching the streets and defusing explosive devices planted earlier by the foreign-backed militants.
The town of Adra, located northeast of the capital, reportedly came under siege by the militants in December last year.
The army took control of the strategic town earlier this week and secured highways as well as an industrial zone on its outskirts.
