Foreign-sponsored militants suffered heavy losses, as the Syrian Army made gains in fresh operations in Daraa and Quneitra provinces on Saturday.
A military source told the state news agency that the army soldiers continued their mop-up operations on Saturday, and killed large numbers of the rebels in Tal al-Hara, Atman, al-Ghariyeh al-Gharbiyeh, al-Nu’eimeh, al-Mseifra, al-Masri, Um al-Mayazen, and al-Soura areas in the Southern province of Daraa.
Several vehicles of the militnats were also destroyed in the countryside of Daraa.
Also, the hideouts of the insurgents were targeted by the Syrian troops in Quneitra province in a series of operations. A large number of the rebels lost their lives in al-Alam, al-Rawadi, Tal Manat al-Hessan, Mas’hara, Nabe’ al-Sakhr, and Um al-Batina areas during the operations.
Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011 with organized attacks by well-armed gangs and terrorists against both the army and civilians.
The unrest, which took in terrorist groups from across Europe, the Middle-East and North Africa, has transpired as one of the bloodiest conflicts in recent history.
As the foreign-backed insurgency in Syria continues without an end in sight, the US government has boosted its political and military support to Takfiri extremists.
