Siria 118Syrian Arab Army Terrorist organizations continue to suffer more losses as the army goes on with its crackdown, foiling their infiltrating attempts and pushing terrorists back in strategic areas in the southern region and leaving many of them killed in areas across the country, state-run SANA news agency reported.

In Daraa, army units targeted positions and dens of terrorists from al-Nusra Front and the so-called “Al-Muthana Islamic Movement” in various areas on the outskirts of Daraa al-Balad neighborhood in the city.

The operations, which were concentrated to the south of al-Hussien Mosque and to the east of the Electricity Company, left numbers of terrorists dead and their vehicles destroyed or damaged, a military source told SANA.

In the northeastern countryside of the southern Daraa province, an army unit killed all members of a terrorist group in the area between al-Mseifra and Tal al-Sheikh Hussein (hill), according to the source.

In the neighboring Sweida province, an army unit killed a number of terrorists to the west of Banat Ba’ir hill and destroyed a mortar launcher in al-Qasr village in the northeastern countryside.

In Quneitra, army units also killed and injured numbers of al-Nusra terrorists and destroyed their weapons and ammunition in al-Hamidiyeh in the northern countryside of the southern Quneitra province.

The army also targeted the terrorists’ supply routes with the Zionist occupation entity in Hirsh Trinjeh and Jabata al-Khashab in the northeastern countryside.

A number of terrorists were killed and their vehicles and ammunition were destroyed during army’s operations in al-Taiha and Mas’hara villages in the eastern countryside of Quneitra province.

Meanwhile, an army unit killed 20 terrorists in Khan al-Shih and the surrounding farms in the countryside of Damascus.

Syria was hit by a violent unrest since mid-March 2011, where the western media reports accuse countries, mainly the USA, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar of orchestrating the civil conflict in the country and providing terrorist groups with money, weapons and trained mercenaries.

On May 2011, Syrian army launched a wide-scale operation against armed groups and gunmen operating in the country, who started to escape the army blows and infiltrate illegally to Lebanon.
