Syrian sources reject report on FSA’s control over strategic factory in Reef Damascus

TEHRAN (FNA)- Informed Syrian sources categorically dismissed the rumors that the armed rebels have captured a strategic factory in Reef (countryside of) Damascus in Southern Syria.

After a car bomb blast on one of the roads leading to the Christian-Druze town of Jaramana in Reef Damascus, the Free Syrian Army (FSA) claimed that it has brought Tamiko Medicine Factory in the region under its control.

However, an informed Syrian source told FNA in Damascus that the FSA has failed to take control of the factory. The source said the blast was part of the rebels’ plan for conquering the area, but failed to produce the militants’ desired result.

A suicide bomber exploded a bomb-laden car at the entrance of Jaramana in Al-Maliheh region, killing and injuring several Syrian civilians on Saturday. Several people were killed and wounded in the blast, although there has yet been no report on the precise number of casualties.

The conflict in Syria started in March 2011, when sporadic pro-reform protests turned into a massive insurgency following the intervention of western and regional states.

The unrest, which took in terrorist groups from across Europe, the Middle-East and North Africa, has transpired as one of the bloodiest conflicts in recent history.

As the foreign-backed insurgency in Syria continues without an end in sight, the US government has boosted its political and military support to Takfiri extremists.

Washington has remained indifferent to warnings by Russia and other world powers about the consequences of arming militant groups.
