Army units, backed by the air force, have launched intensive strikes on the operations rooms, fortified positions and ammo cashes of terrorist organizations in the Al-Hajar al-Aswad district, south of Damascus, destroying many of them and killing scores of terrorists.
The Syrian air force and artillery, SANA's reporter said, directed on Tuesday intensive strikes on the so-called “security square” of terrorists in Al-Hajar al-Aswad, destroying many vehicles and centers alongside all the ammunition and equipment inside.
The reporter added that ground units continued to advance from several directions after weakening terrorists’ defenses, cutting off their supply lines after fierce clashes in the farms located between Al-Hajar al-Aswad, Yalda and Babila.
During their ground operations to take control of the terrorists’ trenches and tunnels in the area, the storming army units eliminated a group of fleeing militants.
The military operation will continue until the eradication of terrorism from the Western Ghouta and control is retaken over southern Damascus, securing the surrounding neighborhoods, the reporter said.
The reporter added that a mortar bomb launched by the terrorist organizations fell on the Al-Midan quarter, causing material damage but no casualties.
