The Syrian army has continued its operations in Rif Dimashq to clear the areas controlled by foreign-backed militants.

The Syrian army also foiled the militants’ plot to enter the capital, Damascus, from three axes.

Syria has been gripped by deadly unrest since March 2011. According to reports, the Western powers and their regional allies -- especially Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey -- are supporting the militants operating inside Syria.
