    DAMASCUS (Sputnik) — The Syrian government troops, supported by combat jets and artillery, drove out terrorists from five areas in the southeastern suburb of Damascus, a Syrian military source told Sputnik on Wednesday.

    "The Syrian army has regained control of five areas in the southeastern suburb of Damascus. As a result of the clashes, the terrorists sustained losses, their firing positions were destroyed," the source said.

    Since 2011, Syria has been engulfed in a civil war, with government forces fighting against numerous opposition and terrorist groups, including al-Nusra Front and Daesh, banned in a range of countries, including Russia.
