Militants Suffer Heavy Losses in Syria’s Daraa, Idlib


Foreign-sponsored militants sustained heavy toll as the Syrian Army gained ground in Daraa and Idlib provinces.

The army soldiers stormed the gathering centers of the rebels in the towns of Daraa al-Balad, Qarfeh, Om al-Maiadzen, al-Sheikh Miskeen, al-Sheikh Miskeen, and Busr al-Harer, killing and injuring scores of them.

Also, the army struck a major blow at the insurgents in Deir Sonbol, Kansafra, Taman’a, Ehsim, Ebleen, Khan Sheikhoun, Balyoun, al-Bara, and al-Habeet, leaving a large number of them dead and wounded.

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.

Units of the armed forces carried out operations against dens and gatherings of terrorists in Daraa province, inflicting heavy losses upon them.

A military source told SANA that army units killed a number of terrorists in the area surrounding Jordan Street in Daraa al-Balad and in Qarfeh town in Daraa countryside.

In the same context, other army units eliminated scores of terrorists in the towns of Om al-Maiadzen and al-Sheikh Miskeen, in addition to destroying a weapons cache in Busr al-Harer town.

Army units destroyed terrorists’ hideouts and eliminate a number of them near the towns of Deir Sonbol and Kansafra in Idleb countryside.

The army also destroyed terrorists’ vehicles in al-Taman’a, Ehsim, Ebleen, Khan Sheikhoun, Balyoun, al-Bara, and al-Habeet.
