Takfiri Terrorists Suffer Heavy Losses across Syria
DAMASCUS (Tasnim) – Syria’s army and its allies continued to make gains in their fight against Takfiri terrorists across the Arab country, inflicting major losses on them.
According to Tasnim dispatches, Syrian forces on Friday targeted the positions of the Jabhat Fatah al-Sham terrorist group (formerly known as al-Nusra Front) in the city of Daraa al-Balad in the southwestern province of Daraa, killing and injuring a large group of them, Syria's official SANA news agency reported.
In a separate development, al-Nusra terrorist suffered major losses in the western province of Hama after army troops launched an offensive against them in the town of Tibet al-Imam town.
Additionally, the Syrian government forces repelled a major offensive by Daesh (ISIL or ISIS) in the western province of Deir ez-Zor, claiming the lives of at least five terrorists there.
Also, dozens of Takfiri terrorists were killed in the areas of Nawara, Ein al-Hoor, and al-Zwaiqat in the northern and northeastern areas of the northwestern province of Lattakia.
Over the past six years, Syria has been fighting foreign-sponsored militancy. UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura estimated in August that more than 400,000 people had been killed in the Syrian crisis until then. The UN has stopped its official casualty count in Syria, citing its inability to verify the figures it receives from various sources.
