Syria army recaptures Damascus neighborhood

Syrian army soldiers have succeeded in taking control over the al-Qaboun neighborhood of Rif Dimashq near capital Damascus.

An unspecific number of militants have lost their lives in the mop-up operation in the industrial area, east of the capital.

Syrian army units also have gained more ground in Damascus suburbs by advancing further in Deir Salman in Eastern al-Ghouta.

Deadly fighting has also been reported near the Damascus-Homs road.

Reports coming out of Syria suggest government forces are pushing ahead with their mop-up operations against the militants across the country.

The army has recently conducted successful clean-up operations in the country, inflicting heavy losses on Takfiri extremists.

Syrian security forces also attacked militant positions in areas around the capital, Damascus, making more gains in the Barza and Hujaira districts near the capital city.

The conflict in Syria started in March 2011, when pro-reform protests turned into a massive insurgency following the intervention of Western and regional states.

The unrest, which took in terrorist groups from across Europe, the Middle East and North Africa, has transpired as one of the bloodiest conflicts in recent history.

As the foreign-backed insurgency in Syria continues without an end in sight, the US government has boosted its political and military support to Takfiri extremists.

Washington has remained indifferent about warnings by Russia and other world powers about the consequences of arming militant groups.
