Syrian Army Forces have managed to eliminate a number of foreign-backed militants and some of their ringleaders in and around the western province of Homs.
Syrian troops killed several militants, including wanted terrorists from the so-called al-Tawhid Brigade, in al-Khalidieh neighborhood of the provincial capital, also called Homs.
Another Army unit clashed with a number of militants near a sports club in al-Rastan city, killing a number of terrorists, among them militant leader Obeid Hassan Obeid, nicknamed Abi Allaith, SANA reported.
More insurgents were killed and injured in northwestern Syria, east of Talkalakh, as they were heading towards the Lebanese border.
The Army also confronted a group of militants between al-Na’mieh and Saddad villages in east of Homs, killing two terrorists and arresting a third.
A number of militants were killed and injured in al-Hula area when their hideouts were targeted in the villages of al-Hosn and al-Taybieh al-Gharbieh.
Meanwhile, units of the Syrian armed forces inflicted heavy losses upon al-Nusra Front terrorists in Hama countryside.
The Syria crisis began in March 2011, and many people, including large numbers of soldiers and security personnel, have been killed in the violence.
The Syrian government says the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country, and there are reports that a very large number of the militants are foreign nationals.
Damascus says the West and its regional allies, such as Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey, are supporting the militants.
