Syrian army has restored security to Qaboun industrial district, located at northern suburbs of capital Damascus, Syrian TV has reported.

Following days of fierce clashes near capital, the army has successfully taken Qaboun under complete control.

Qaboun was one of the main battlefields between insurgents and Syrian soldiers.

Army operations in Qaboun were more complicated due to the congested texture of its residential areas and presence of many civilians who were threatened by extremist militants to be used as human shields.
