The Syrian Army troops blocked terrorists' move in heavy fighting in Eastern Ghouta on Wednesday.

The army soldiers warded off terrorists' offensive on their positions in Wadi (desert) Ein Terma, killing over five militants and wounding several others.

In the meantime, the Syrian warplanes bombed terrorists' centers in the town of al-Shifouniyeh and surrounding areas of the town of al-Hamouriyeh.

Also, fierce clashes restarted between the army soldiers and militants in Meida'ani, al-Mohammadiyeh and Damascus-Homs highway.

Also, the army men stormed terrorists' concentration centers and gatherings in the triangle of al-Bahariyeh-Meida'ani-Hazarma on Sunday and captured over 25 farms and buildings.

The terrorist groups, that had lost their positions in the army attacks, carried out a rapid counterattack but failed to take back the lost land and retreated from the battlefield after leaving behind over 15 fighters dead and several more wounded, FNA reported.
