Provinces, SANA_ The Syrian army and armed forces backed by air force continued eliminating terrorist groups in several provinces of the country on Monday.
A military source announced on Monday afternoon that the Army and Armed Forces restored security to the town of Maydaaa in the Eastern Ghouta part of Damascus Countryside after eliminating the remaining gatherings of terrorists in it.
The source said in a statement to SANA that army units, in cooperation with the popular defense groups, clashed with terrorist groups that attacked military posts and civilians in Maydaa in the depth of the Eastern Ghouta, and that the clashes resulted in killing a number of terrorists, injuring others, and establishing full control over the town.
Engineering units combed the town completely, dismantling scores of explosive devices which were planted by terrorists, and confiscated various arms and ammunition which had been in the possession of the so-called al-Islam Brigade.
Establishing control over Maydaa is a considerable military achievement since it completes and enhances the security perimeter around the areas where terrorists are active in the Eastern Ghouta and cuts off one of the most important supply routes they had been using to procure arms and ammunition through al-Badiya desert.
