TEHRAN (FNA)- Military sources said the Syrian armed forces are advancing in Qara city, which lies in Northern Qalamoun.
The sources told al-Manar that the army was advancing in the city after it had controlled its mounts.
The Syrian army had started its operation against the foreign-backed insurgents in Qara few days ago.
Syrian troops made major advances in parts of the Qalamoun Mountains, located at North of al-Salmiya in Hama.
Qalamoun and surrounding mountains have been major hideout for militants fighting the Syrian government.
In May, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said militants from 29 different countries are fighting against his government forces in different parts of the country.
The western powers and their regional allies — especially Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey — are supporting the militants operating inside Syria.
