Army continues operations in Ghouta, inflicts heavy losses upon al-Nusra terrorists

SANA – Syrian Arab Army units on Wednesday continued military operations against Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist organization and affiliated groups in the Eastern Ghouta in Damascus Countryside.

SANA’s reporter in Ghouta said that army units carried out over the past hours intensive operations against the terrorists’ hideouts in the surroundings of Hosh al-Ashaari village and the farms of al-Mohamadieh, al-Rihan, and Mesraba, inflicting heavy losses upon the terrorists in personnel and arms.

Army engineering units are combing Hosh al-Ashaari village and clearing the explosive devices and landmines which terrorists had planted in the village, the reporter said.

Regaining control over a number of the villages and towns in Ghouta contributed to cutting off supply routes and connections among the terrorist groups, as their members are collectively fleeing due to the rapid advance of the army units, the reporter said.

Army units on Tuesday established full control over al-Mohammadieh town and Housh al-Ashaari village.
