After yesterday (19/5/2015) gains in northeastern Hasaka province, the army units advanced further on the mountainous Qalamoun area in Damascus Countryside on Wednesday, assuming control of new areas there, in addition to targeting terrorist positions all across the country.
The army, in cooperation with the Lebanese Resistance and the popular defense groups, established full control over more hills in the mountainous Qalamoun area in Damascus Countryside.
The new areas which came under the army’s control include Shmeiset al-Hosan Mount, Qirnet al-Tawil, Qirnet al-Mish, and Oqbat al-Faskh in Flita mountains, a military source said on Wednesday.
This came one week after eliminating the last groups of terrorists in Raas al-Maara mountains and the strategic Mousa hill.
A series of special operations carried out in cooperation between the army, the Resistance and the popular defense groups led to the new achievement, during which many terrorists were killed and their vehicles were destroyed, the source said.
