BEIRUT (Sputnik) — A Syrian military source told Sputnik on Tuesday that the Syrian army has thwarted a major attack by militants near Harasta in the vicinity of the country's capital Damascus.

"Our armed forces repelled an attack of a large number of terrorists on one of our military positions in Harasta in the suburbs of Damascus," the source said.

The source added that a few dozen terrorists were eliminated.
