The army has established a firm grip on the town of al-Denaji in the countryside of Damascus on Tuesday, a military source has said.
A SANA reporter quoted the source as saying a unit of the army and armed forces eliminated the last remaining terrorist presence in al-Denaji, a town bordering the southern province of Quneitra.
In doing so, the army has assumed full control of the town, the source said, noting that army personnel have started combing the area and dismantling mines and explosive devices left behind by terrorists.
Army units established control of Tal Merei in the western countryside after crushing terrorist groups in the area.
The army has also been gaining ground in the southern region, with its units restoring security and stability to the town of Deir al-Adas in the northwestern countryside of Daraa today. Army units also established control over Tall Mseih overlooking the town.
