Syrian Arab Army performs further mop-up operations in the countryside.

Several units of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) carried out further cleansing operations as well as mop-up ops in the capital Damascus and also in the countryside (Reef) of the Syrian capital. The mop-up operations and following battles ended in the elimination of several hideouts of the terrorists within the Syrian capital, Damascus.

The troops and soldiers of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) were also able to destroy large numbers of heavy machineguns in the terrorist hideouts and other locations in the capital and also in the countryside of Damascus.

Already yesterday, a unit of the Syrian army has successfully eliminated and wounded an amount of foreign-supported terrorists and jihadists in the eastern post of Ghouta, located in the countryside of the Syrian capital, Damascus. Of course, also the clashes between the Syrian army units and foreign-backed terrorists continued in the known Damascus neighbourhood Harasta. These clashes ended with the result that some terrorists and Takfiri militants were killed, others injured. In addition, the hideout and weapons as well as the seized ammunition were destroyed by the unit of the Syrian army after they have successfully eliminated some terrorists in Harasta.

Another long tunnel of the foreign-backed terrorists was discovered in the area of al-Qaboun, located under the known highway between the capital Damascus and the Syrian city of Homs (connects Joubar and al-Qaboun).

This tunnel of the terrorists has a length of impressive 400 metres and was used as hideout, depot, as transfer route for the transfer of weapons, and as sleeping place by and for the armed terrorists. In addition, according to a source, several monitors and camera monitoring equipment were found in this tunnel as already in previous tunnels of these terrorists.

There are also some news about the strategically important city of Aleppo (Halab) in northern Syria, near the Syrian border to Turkey. The Syrian Arab Army (SAA) continued their mop-up operations against the terrorists and Al Qaeda-linked groups in the countryside of Aleppo. These operations by the units of the Syrian army had the result of several destroyed cars that were loaded with ammunition and arms. According to SANA, the cares were coming from Turkey.

Syria, Damascus Bigger Map?

Also in Bani Zaid, a neighbourhood of the Syrian city of Aleppo (Halab), several terrorists and religious fanatics were killed or injured in an explosion. So far, the reason for this explosion is not known.

As already mentioned in this longer article about the infighting, the Al Qaeda in Syria and the hopeless situation of the US-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA) in their attempts to survive in Syria, the Syrian Arab Army advances in several parts of the Arab nation and will certainly defeat the terrorists of the FSA (Free Syrian Army) and later the “Syrian Al Qaeda branch” – but the cleaning of the country will need a long time. Much longer than we sure do hope.
