Damascus, SANA – The General Command of the Army and Armed Forces said on Wednesday that army units carried out a wide-scale military operation in the southern region which resulted in consecutive significant achievements in several areas of Damascus Countryside, Quneitra, and Daraa.
The General Command said that army units restored security and stability to the towns of Dair al-Adas, al-Danaji and Dair Maker, establishing control over the hills of Massih, Murrei, al-Arous, and al-Sarjeh.
According to the General Command, the army eliminated large numbers of terrorists from Jabhet al-Nusra, adding that it is still pursuing the terrorists groups who collapsed under the strikes of the Syrian Arab Army in the rural areas of Damascus Countryside, Quneitra, and Daraa provinces.
The General Command said that these successes achieved by the army in the southern area are vital as they secure the areas between Damascus and Quneitra and between Damascus and Daraa on one hand, and on the other hand these operations cut off supply and communication lines between terrorists in these provinces, adding that establishing controls over the hills which are vantage points will help achieve more military victories in the area.
The General Command concluded by vowing that the army will continue to fulfill its national duties in all terrorism-afflicted areas.
