The Syrian army arrested several women militants as they were conducting a bombing operation in Damascus countryside.
The army units detained 4 terrorists in the town of Qatna in Damascus countryside as they were planting bombs in trash cans around the town.
The captured terrorists have confessed during the early stages of interrogation that they planned to bomb crowded areas and streets in a bid to take the largest number of victims and target more Syrian soldiers in those areas.
Syria has been the scene of deadly violence since March 2011. Over 130,000 people have reportedly been killed and millions displaced due to the crisis.
According to reports, the western powers and their regional allies — especially Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey — are supporting the militants operating inside Syria.
