Syrian Army units regained control over the mountains chain north of al-Mazar Mountains in the northern countryside of Palmyra in eastern Homs after destroying the latest ISIL fortifications in it, SANA reported.
A military source told SANA Sunday that the army continued advance towards ISIL posts east and north of Palmyra city and established control over the mountains chain, about 30km north of the mountains of al-Mazar and al-Haram.
Later, army units, in cooperation with allied forces, established control over the chain of Talila Heights, 20 km southeast of Palmyra.
An army unit destroyed a large ammunition depot for al-Nusra terrorists in Deir Foul in the northern countryside of Homs.
Syria Dismisses Media Lies on Damascus
In Damascus, Syrian ground forces and warplanes have repelled a multi-pronged attack by the Takfiri terror group Al-Nusra front (now known as Jabhat Fateh al-Sham) in Damascus’ countryside.
The terrorists and their allies started advancing from the Eastern Ghouta District near the capital early Sunday. Government forces engaged them in the suburban Jobar District later in the day.
The military killed and injured a number of the Takfiris, destroyed two of the attackers’ explosives-laden vehicles, and stopped them as they tried to make an inroad into the district through underground tunnels.
Jobar separates Eastern Ghouta, which holds large Takfiri concentrations, from Damascus proper.
Meanwhile, SANA reporter denied media reports claiming that the terrorist organizations have taken over al-Abbassiyeen bus station area, northeast of Damascus city.
“All rumors and lies circulated by media outlets which are involved in the shedding of the Syrians’ blood about terrorist organizations having taken control over al-Abbassiyeen bus station area are untrue,” the reporter stressed.
