Damascus

 

The Syrian Army troops drove the ISIL out of over eighty percent of Hajar al-Aswad region in the Southern part of Damascus province on Tuesday.

 

The army men continued to strike the ISIL near Yarmouk Camp, al-Tazamon neighborhood and Hajar al-Aswad region, and imposed control over more areas.

 

Also, other units of the army manage to take control of several more buildings in the Western and Eastern wings of Yarmouk Camp.

 

The army men tightened noose on ISIL after cutting off their supply lines and taking control of vast areas in Hajar al-Aswad, West of Yarmouk Camp and East of al-Qadam neighborhood.

 

In the meantime, the London-based pro-opposition Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that over 80 percent of Hajar al-Aswad is now under the army's control and only a small part of the region is held by the ISIL.

 

Earlier, the army men continued to storm ISIL's positions Northwest of Hajar al-Aswad region and managed to capture al-Rus square in al-Jazeera and several buildings near the square.

 

Also, the army's artillery and missile units and aircraft pounded the remaining positions of ISIL in Hajar al-Aswad and Yarmouk Camp, destroying a base and several arms depots of the terrorists.

 

In the meantime, field sources reported that other units of the army managed to advance against ISIL from the North of Hajar al-Aswad towards Yarmouk Camp and imposed full control over several buildings.

 

The sources said that the army is heading on to end ISIL's presence in Southern Damascus.

 

Hama

 

The Syrian Army troops entered more regions in Northern Homs and Southern Hama on Tuesday as terrorists and their family members continued to withdraw from the Central parts of the country.

 

The army units managed to deploy in Bariqith, Eidoun, al-Dalak and Taloul al-Hamar regions in Southeastern Hama after terrorists and their family members that rejected the army's peace offer left for Northern Syria.

 

Also, other units of the army entered the villages of Salim, al-Hamrat, al-Quneitrat, al-Hamis and Humeimeh in Northern Homs.

 

The army men will soon take control over Northern Homs and Southeastern Hama as the militants are leaving these regions for the Northern parts of the country.

 

A field source said earlier on Tuesday that the army has raised the country's flag over a number of buildings in several newly-liberated regions, adding that Northern Homs and Southern Hama will be soon purged of terrorists completely.

 

The sources said that the sixth group of terrorists and their family members that rejected the army's peace offer left Northern Homs and Southern Hama for militant-held regions in Idlib province.

 

They said that hundreds of terrorists and their families left the village of al-Masma'alil in Northern Homs for al-Mokhtariyeh and later for Idlib on 59 buses.

 

In the meantime, 63 more buses transferred hundreds of terrorists and their family members to Idlib via al-Rastan passageway.

 

They added that Northern Homs' residents hoisted the government flags over buildings in the towns and villages of al-Rastan, Talbiseh and Ezzeddeen amid expulsion of the terrorists from their regions.

 

The sources said that expulsion of the terrorists from Northern Homs and Southern Hama is coming to an end and the region will be soon cleaned of terrorists.

 

Dara'a

 

The Syrian Army has dispatched more troops and equipment to the Southern province of Dara'a, raising the possibility of a large-scale operation against terrorists in Dara'a province, an Arab media outlet reported on Tuesday.

 

Al-Watan daily quoted field sources as saying that the army has reinvigorated its combat capabilities near the town of Um Walad in Eastern Dara'a.

 

The army has also sent a number of forces and a large volume of military hardware to Tal al-Hadid region, the daily added.

 

The daily further said that the army is preparing for a large-scale operation as its reinvigorated positions in al-Hadid and Um al-Walad overlook a number towns and supply lines.

 

The army's operation in Yarmouk Camp and Hajar al-Aswad in Southern Syria is ending and expulsion of terrorists from Northern Homs and Southern Hama are successfully underway.

 

Homs

 

The Syrian Army soldiers entered a number of villages in Northern Homs on Tuesday amid expulsion of the seventh group of terrorists and their family members from Northern Homs and Southern Hama.

 

The army units deployed to the villages of Deir Foul, al-Mokaramiyeh, al-Za'afaraniye and Ezzeddeen after terrorists retreated from the region along with their family members under an evacuation agreement with the army.

 

Also, the seventh group of terrorists and their families, whose total number stood at 2,850, left Northern Homs and Southern Hama for Northern Syria via Qala al-Maziq passageway.

 

A sum of 27,323 terrorists and their family members that rejected the army's peace offer have left Northern Homs and Southern Hama since the start of an evacuation plan.

 

Aleppo

 

The Syrian Army will dispatch more troops and equipment to the Western part of Aleppo province to purge the region of terrorists after the latter shelled heavily residential areas, will-informed sources reported on Tuesday.

 

The Arabic-language al-Watan daily quoted the sources as reporting that terrorists, deployed in al-Lairamoun industrial zone and West of al-Zahra district and in Zahrat Abd Raba Northwest of Aleppo city, fired over 100 mortar shells and missiles at a local bazaar in al-Nile streets, adding that al-Andaros and al-Shahba neighborhoods in Western Aleppo were also harmed as the terrorists expanded range of their attacks.

 

The daily further said that a number of civilians were killed or wounded in the attacks, adding that residents in the local bazaar and al-Shahba al-Jadidah called on the army to purge Jam'iyat al-Zahra, al-Lairamoun industrial zone and Zahrat Abd Rabah of terrorists and restore more security to the region.

 

The daily further said that the army has ordered dispatch of more troops and equipment to Western Aleppo to launch an imminent operation in the region that is mainly controlled by foreign members of al-Turkistan and the Al-Nusra front (Tahrir al-Sham Hay'at or the Levant Liberation Board).

 

Also, the constant attacks by Tahrir al-Sham Hay'at on the Al-Zahra Association Quarter and its nearby districts have infuriated the Russian forces in the area so much that they have warned to return fire.

 

Raqqa

 

Tens of people in Western Raqqa demonstrated on Tuesday to show their protest against the rule of the Kurdish militias, calling for their expulsion from their region.

 

Tens of residents in the village of al-Jarniyeh in Western Raqqa took to the main street in the village and protested against the Kurdish militias' forced recruitment and brutal measures.

 

In the meantime, a number young people were arrested by the Kurds in Hasaka city under a forced recruitment plan.

 

Local sources in Raqqa reported earlier this month that tens of civilians residing in Central Raqqa were attacked by the Kurdish forces after staging protest rallies against the US military presence in the region.

 

According to Fars News Agancy, they underlined heightened tensions between Raqqa residents and the Kurdish forces, noting that 7 civilians were arrested during the rallies.

 

Meantime, reports said that a number of Kurdish officials and commanders were killed amid intensified popular uprising in Raqqa.

 

Also reports from Hasaka province said that one of the Kurdish forces was killed by unknown assailants in the village of Tal Jamal near Qamishli.
