    The Syrian army with support of the Russian Aerospace Forces has destroyed a Daesh command point.

    QUARYATAYN (Syria) (Sputnik) – The Syrian army with support of the Russian Aerospace Forces has destroyed a command point of Daesh militant group, constructed on the site of a Christian monastery demolished by the extremists, as part of a campaign to liberate the city of Quaryatayn in the southern Homs province, a RIA Novosti correspondent reported Tuesday.

    The Syrian army with support of the Russian aviation has been carrying out an operation to liberate the Christian town of Quaryatayn this month. The town is located in a strategically important location at the crossroads of territories controlled by the Daesh in Homs. Presently, the Syrian army is clearing up the city and destroying remaining extremist groups.

    On Sunday, the Syrian army, supported by militia, completely liberated Quaryatayn from the Daesh militants.

    Large parts of Syria have been taken over by Daesh militant group, which is outlawed in Russia among other countries.
