the Syrian army has recently gained more ground near Damascus, taking control of more areas including the town of Htatitet al-Jirish in eastern al-Ghouta.
Syrian forces have also discovered a school in the region that foreign-backed terrorists used as their field hospital.
Terrorists also had various types of equipment, such as anti-tank mines and computers, at their disposal in the school.
A Syrian army officer told Press TV “We killed a large number of terrorists and destroyed their vehicles. We seized all their bases in the town and we continue to advance and inflict heavy losses on them. They are suffering heavily and we will do our duty in securing all parts of the country.”
The terrorists had lots of stored food, which indicates that they relied on the town as a base for defending deeper positions. However, the Syrian army proved them wrong.
Over the past months, the Syrian army has made major gains in its battle against Takfiri terrorists across the country.
According to the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), more than 191,000 people have been killed in over three years of battle in Syria.
