Syrian forces hit militant positions, destroy Daesh trenches near Damascus

Syria’s official news agency SANA reported that Syrian military aircraft and army artillery units destroyed dug-out trenches and tunnels in al-Hajar al-Aswad city, located just four kilometers south of the capital Damascus, and the nearby Palestinian refugee camp of Yarmouk on Tuesday.

Syrian ground forces also advanced from several directions after terrorists’ defense lines were hit hard.

Government troops engaged in fierce clashes with Takfiri militants near Hajar al-Aswad, Yalda and Babbila towns on the southern outskirts of Damascus, cutting off the terrorists’ supply lines.

Scores of terrorists were killed in the process, and several others managed to flee to nearby neighborhoods.

Also on Tuesday, the fourth batch of foreign-sponsored terrorists and their families departed eastern Qalamoun area for a designated point on the outskirts of al-Rahaiba town in northern Syria.

The third group of militants and their families evacuated eastern Qalamoun on Monday evening.

Syria has been gripped by foreign-backed militancy since March 2011. The Syrian government says the Israeli regime and its Western and regional allies are aiding Takfiri militant groups that are wreaking havoc in the country.
