The Syrian Army troops backed by the popular forces repelled the militant groups’ assaults in Western Ghouta on Wednesday and their heavy shelling forced the terrorists to flee from the battlefield.

The militant groups’ attack to infiltrate into the defense lines of the pro-government forces in Darayya was thwarted by the strong defense of the Syrian soldiers and the National Defense Forces.

The militants left behind tens of dead or wounded members and fled the battlefront.

In the meantime, the militant groups' movements near the town of Douma in Eastern Ghouta were slowed down by the Syrian army's attack.

The army said earlier today that scores of militants were killed or wounded in the Syrian Army and Air Forces' offensives across Eastern and Western Ghouta in Damascus province.

"The Syrian fighter jets, in a fresh round of combat sorties, targeted the militant groups' defense lines near the town of Douma in Eastern Ghouta, which left several terrorists dead and several more wounded," the army said.

"In the meantime, the Syrian army's artillery units shelled the terrorist groups' strongholds in Jobar, Zamalka and Douma in Eastern Ghouta and Darayya in Western Ghouta, which ended in the killing or wounding of tens of the militants," the army went on to say.

"Also, the Syrian army raided the militant groups' centers in al-Bilaliyeh in Eastern Ghouta and destroyed their military hardware in large scale," the army said; FNA reported.
