Syrian troops have killed 40 armed insurgents from Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Jordan in the Damascus suburb of al-Qanitra, a Syrian military source has revealed.

The revelation came in an interview published Monday by the Lebanon-based El-Nashra newspaper, which further cited the source as saying that the intruding terrorists were killed when positions of armed opposition groups were ambushed by Syrian army units.

The Syrian source reiterated that all those killed in the operation were Qatari, Saudi and Jordanian nationals.

Syrian government troops have been inflicting heavy strikes on foreign-backed terrorist groups in different areas across the Arab country.
