– Syrian government forces struck a heavy blow at the Takfiri militants in Sweida on Monday, leaving a large group of them dead.
The army killed all members of a terrorist group affiliated to the ISIL after monitoring their movements in al-Qaser village, 60 km to the Northeast of Sweida, a military source said.
Meanwhile, the Syrian troops clashed with ISIL terrorists while they were trying to infiltrate towards al- Harfoush farm, to the South of al-Haqf village, killing and injuring a number of them and destroying their arms and ammunition.
Syria has been grappling with a deadly crisis since March 2011. The violence fuelled by Takfiri groups has so far claimed the lives of over 230,000 people, according to reports. New figures show that over 76,000 people, including thousands of children, lost their lives in Syria last year.
