Syrian military aircraft conducted a series of strikes into the strategic Qalamoun mountain region, leaving a large number of Takfiri militants dead and injured.
According to the latest report, the Syrian bombers pounded the strongholds of the foreign-backed rebels in the barrens of Assal al-Ward and claimed the lives of scores of them.
Also, the militants suffered major losses in the districts of Mortbaya and Mireh, as the army continued to make gains in its fight against the armed groups.
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.
