Syria heading towards victory against terrorism, restoring security and stability to Khalediya neighborhood

Jul 29, 2013

Homs, (SANA) – The Syrian Arab Army has made a new victory against terrorism along with the restoration of security and stability to Homs province.

After al-Qseir, al-Qaryatin and Tal-Kalakh, the Syrian Arab Army restored security to al-Khalediya neighborhood after it has been for several months a stronghold for the armed terrorist groups.

After two years of suffering sustained by the locals of Homs because of the armed terrorist groups, the armed forces eliminated the Takfiri terrorism in al-Khalediya neighborhood.

In a statement to SANA, a field commander saluted the brave soldiers of the Syrian Arab Army who forced the terrorists out of the neighborhood, pointing out to the importance of liberating this area in blocking the supply roads for the armed terrorist groups.

The commander said the purge operation was  carried out through three stages; the first stage was retaking control of the southern part of the neighborhood and blocks overlooking Khalid bin al-Walid Mosque; the second stage was retaking control over Beit al-Alo Park, al-Hafyan roundabout and the surrounding of the Mosque, and the third stage was eliminating the terrorists through the hard strikes of the army.

For his part, Head of the National Reconciliation Committee, Sheikh Saleh al-Nouaimi, expressed the happiness of the Syrian people over the achievements of the Syrian Arab Army on the ground.

He added that the residents of the neighborhood started communications with the committee as to come back to their homes.

Analysts pointed out that the liberation of al-Khalediya which is located at the center of the old city of Homs and a stronghold for terrorists' leaders means cutting the supply roads for terrorists and controlling one of the most important headquarters for terrorist operation commands.

They added that this achievement would further escalate the dramatic collapse of terrorists and would force them to surrender their weapons.
