Syrian Arab Army Regains Control over Strategic Town in Eastern Ghouta

TEHRAN (FNA) – The Syrian army continued its advances in many areas of Damascus countryside in the Southern parts of the country and seized back control over a strategic town in there.

The army units regained full control over Housh Al-Fareh in Eastern Ghouta in Damascus on Tuesday.

Tens of militants were killed and dozens more injured in heavy clashes with the army.

Also in the past 24 hours, the Syrian army made major advances in Hama province and took back an important town in there.

The Syrian troops regained control over Bweida town in Hama countryside and also broke the sieges of two military bases of Wadi al-Zaif and Al-Hamediya.

Also, the foreign-backed militants sustained heavy casualties in the areas of Kafar Zita, al-Sayyad, Morek, al-Latamna, Dakila, al-Janoubia, Ein Hussein, Talbisa, al-Waer and al-Shaer in Hama, as the army gained more ground in their battle against the armed groups.

Meantime, the hideouts of the rebels were raided in Hraitan, al-Ramousa, Old Aleppo, al-Kallasa, Hayyan, al-Sheikh Sa’id, al-Amiria, al-A’azamia, Anadan, Aghyour, and Handarat in Aleppo by the army. A large number of the insurgents lost their lives during the operation.

Foreign-sponsored militants suffered major losses, as the Syrian Army continued to gain more ground in Homs province.

The army soldiers stormed the strongholds of the rebels in al-S’en, al-Gharbi, Ein Hussein and al-Janoubi areas in Homs, leaving huge numbers of them dead and wounded.

Also, the army struck a heavy blow at the insurgents in al-Waer, al-Rastan, Tal Dao, Kafer Laha and al-Hula in Homs, and claimed the lives of too many of them.

The ongoing clashes between ISIL terrorists and Kurdish fighters intensified in the central and Eastern parts of the Syrian town of Kobani on Tuesday, media reports said.

Reports coming out of the town on Tuesday said that the two sides shelled each other’s positions in and exchanged fire for hours, World Bulletin reported.

Kobani has witnessed fierce gun battles between ISIL terrorists, who control large areas of Iraq and Syria, and Kurdish fighters since mid-September.

Also, the Kurdish fighters in Kobani voiced opposition to the dispatch of forces from the armed opposition group, the Free Syrian Army (FSA), to the embattled Kurdish city to help its resistance forces in the war against the ISIL terrorist group.

The Kurdish Popular Protection Units (YPG) forces underlined that they will not allow the FSA to enter Kobani, several media of the Arab world and the Syrian opposition website Syrians News quoted Arabic-language Sky News channel as saying.

“We welcome the entrance of Kurdish Pishmarga forces, but the FSA forces commanded by Abdul Jabbar al-Agedi can fight the ISIL in other places like Jerablus and Manbij (not in Kobani),” YPG Commander Siban Hamou was quoted as saying by the above-mentioned Arabic-language media as saying.

Deputy Head of the YPG in the Syrian town of Kobani Owj Alan Issou told FNA a few days ago that the YPG forces were still continuing their resistance, adding that the terrorists had withdrawn from most parts of the town.

“Yet, they are still in control of 20% of the city and the YPG forces are planning to attack the terrorists in those regions.”

Asked about the role of the coalition forces in fighting the ISIL, Issou said most of the coalition airstrikes are staged around the city, “but they don’t attack the terrorists outside the city where the terrorists are trafficking and transferring their forces towards the city and therefore, the terrorists are trying to break the people’s resistance with a rather intact level of power”.

He warned that the terrorists will massacre the people of Kobani in case they manage to capture the city, and urged those states which help the ISIL, specially Turkey, to cut their arms aid to the terrorist group.

“The documents carried by those terrorists who have been killed show that they are mostly foreigners and come from Chechnya, Turkey, Morocco, Egypt, Belgium and France to Syria and their passports have all been sealed in Turkey,” Issou said.
