Syrian Army units reportedly carried out a successful special operation against an ISIS concentration in south east Damascus Countryside wiping out terrorists from that area, while engaging anti-Syrian groups in other parts of the country.
A military spokesman told the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) that army artillery stroke the terrorist gathering in Beer al-Qasab, killing all the terrorists and destroying all their weaponry.
That is a hard blow to anti-Syrian forces following the failed attempt
by Al-Nusra Front, now Hay'at Tahrir al-Sham (Organization for the Liberation of the Levant) to take control of Jobar, also in Damascus Province.
The military General Command announced on Friday that army units reclaimed all the points and blocks of buildings which were infiltrated by terrorists north of Jobar.
The head of the Syrian delegation to the fifth round of peace talks in Geneva, Bashar al-Jaafari, said the Government is focused on counter-terrorism while assessing and following up the Geneva and Astana tracks.

In the fighting, a number of ISIS terrorists were killed and others injured in the air strikes, in addition many of their hideouts and equipment were destroyed.
Meanwhile, in Daraa (southern Syria) army units launched operations targeting Hay'at Tahrir al-Sham groups -former Al-Nusra Front) breaking their positions in that souther province bordering Jordan.
