Syrian Troops Attack Terrorists in Idleb's Countryside

TEHRAN (FNA)- Forces of the Syrian Army continued targeting the gatherings and dens of al-Nusra Front's terrorists in Idleb's countryside.



The Army destroyed weapons and equipment of terrorists in the surrounding of al-Fanar restaurant in Jabal al-Arabaeen area, an official source who asked to remain anonymous said.

Many terrorists were killed and many others were wounded in the town of Kfarlata and the city of Ariha which are located in Jabal al-Arbaeen region.

The source added that units of the Syrian Armed Forces destroyed terrorists' dens, along with the weapons and ammunition inside, in the towns of Ein al-Qasab, Mashmashan, Qatroun, al-Najiyeh, Ein al-Barideh, Bazit, Darkoush, Heish, Tall Salmo, Um Jreen, al-Buweiti, al-Tur'eh and Mseibin.

Meantime, members of a terrorist group were killed near M'atrem town on Ariha-Jisr al-Shughour road, the source said, adding other units of the army continued pursuing terrorists near brick factory and al-Shabibeh camp.

Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011 with organized attacks by well-armed gangs against Syrian police forces and border guards being reported across the country.

The US and its western and regional allies have long sought to topple Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his ruling system. Media reports said that the Syrian rebels and terrorist groups have received significantly more and better weapons in recent weeks, a crime paid for by the Persian Gulf Arab states and coordinated by the United States.

The US daily, Washington Post, reported in May that the Syrian rebels and terrorist groups battling Assad's government have received significantly more and better weapons in recent weeks, a crime paid for by the Persian Gulf Arab states and coordinated by the United States.

The newspaper, quoting opposition activists and US and foreign officials, reported that Obama administration officials emphasized the administration has expanded contacts with opposition military forces to provide the Persian Gulf nations with assessments of rebel credibility and command-and-control infrastructure.

Opposition activists who several months ago said the rebels were running out of ammunition said in May that the flow of weapons - most bought on the black market in neighboring countries or from elements of the Syrian military in the past - has significantly increased after a decision by Saudi Arabia, Qatar and other Persian Gulf states to provide millions of dollars in funding each month.
