Unnamed military sources told Syria’s official news agency SANA on Thursday that army soldiers and pro-government fighters from popular defense groups uncovered the 250-meter-long and one-meter-wide tunnel in Harasta city, situated roughly 8 kilometers northeast of Damascus.

The sources added that terrorists with the so-called Jaysh al-Islam, formerly known as Liwa al-Islam, group used the tunnel to transfer militants in addition to ammunition, and infiltrate into government-held areas.

The Syrian Army's engineering units later placed explosives inside the tunnel, destroying it and all militants' structure built above it.
