Some 70 wanted Takfiri militants surrendered to the Syrian authorities on Thursday to be pardoned as the army continues to advance against the terrorists.
They are from Damascus and its countryside, Homs, Daraa and Idlib.
On Sept 26, 36 wanted militants also surrendered to the competent authorities in Hama.
Hundreds of gunmen have been laying down their weapons and turning themselves in to authorities in areas across the country.
This number seems to be on the rise as the army has been making steady gains in the battlefield against the terrorist groups, recapturing an increasing number of regions, including strategic sites, which helped cut off many of the militants’ supply routes and forced them to surrender or run away.
