"The militant groups' fortified positions in Zamalka in the northeastern outskirts of Damascus came under a massive offensive of the Syrian army and its allies," military sources told FARS.
Syrian government forces also carried out assaults on jihadists’ positions in the suburban towns of al-Reihan, al-Nashabiyah, Ein Tarma and Jobar.
"The pro-government forces killed or wounded many terrorists and destroyed their military hardware,” the Syrian Army sources reported.
“The Syrian forces' attack on al-Nusra Front's gatherings in Ein Tarma in the east of Damascus killed dozens of the terrorists, including a Yemeni and two of the group’s field commanders.”
Jihadi terrorist groups close to Ein Tarma, Zamalka and Douma, a town 10 km north-east of the center of Damascus, were targeted in the airstrikes, which caused heavy losses, FARS reported.
“A logistic military site of the so-called Jeish al-Islam in Douma Farms came under massive bombing from Syrian jets. Several fuel reservoirs, military vehicles and mortar-launchers were destroyed in the attacks," the military said.
"The Syrian Army exploded one of the major military sites of Liwa Fajr al-Ummah, affiliated to Ajnad al-Sham, in Harasta," which left many terrorists dead or wounded and led to several major explosions when ammunition that the group was keeping at the site caught fire.
