The Syrian air force has smashed the al-Nusra militants' hideouts and positions in Eastern Ghouta, Damascus province, inflicting a number of casualties on the terrorists, a military source said on Saturday.

"The Syrian fighter jets pounded the military positions and gathering centers of the al-Nusra terrorists in al-Marj region in Eastern Ghouta, which resulted in the destruction of the terrorists' military grid," the battlefield source said.

The Syrian air force has intensified its air raids on militants' strongholds across Ghouta region inflicting growing loss and damage on the terrorists.
