Syrian forces have regained control of five outposts near the border with Jordan from Daesh Takfiri terrorists as they continue their counter-terrorism operations in the country’s southern province of Suwayda.
An unnamed military source told Syria’s official news agency SANA that Syrian army troops and their allies were now in control of outposts 165 to 169 on the border with Jordan.
The source added that the outposts were retaken following intense clashes with Daesh militants in which scores of the foreign-sponsored Takfiri terrorists were killed and wounded.
He further noted that Syrian army units were presently combing the liberated area of ordnance and improvised explosive devices, which Daesh extremists had planted across the desert region.
Separately, Syrian army soldiers struck the positions of Daesh extremists in the militant-held cities of Raqqah, Hama and Dayr al-Zawr, killing dozens of terrorists, destroying 22 vehicles belonging to foreign-backed militants, a number of weapons caches, three tanks and several armored vehicles.
