Damascus, SANA – The General Command of the Army and Armed Forces announced on Friday that army units reclaimed all the points and blocks of buildings which were infiltrated by terrorists north of Jobar.
In a statement, the General command said that army units, in cooperation with the supporting forces, reclaimed all points and the blocks of buildings that had been infiltrated by terrorists from Jabhat al-Nusra and groups affiliated to it in the factories area in the northern part of Jobar neighborhood at the eastern outskirts of Damascus.
The statement said that army units are still pursuing the remnants of the fleeing terrorists in the depths of Jobar, while engineering units are dismantling and removing explosive devices and bombs planted by terrorists in the area.
The General Command pointed out that during the past 48 hours, the factories area north of Jobar has become a graveyard for successive waves of terrorists in which hundreds of them were killed, adding that the success of the Syrian Armed Forces in crushing the successive waves of terrorists in the factories area confirms the terrorists’ foolishness on one hand, and the insistence of their operators and sponsors to use them as fuel and push them to suicide to serve their agendas and goals on the other hand.
The General Command concluded its statement by renewing its pledge to the Syrian people to remain the bastion that protects Syria, reaffirming its determination to continue the war on terrorism until it is eliminated and until security and stability are restored to the entirety of the Syrian Arab Republic.
