Syrian Army Takes Control of Two Damascus Suburbs

According to state media


The Syrian army has regained control of the Damascus' suburbs of Daraya and Akraba after days of intense fighting with armed militias, a pro-government paper said Thursday.

Quoting what it called as "a well-informed source," al-Watan daily said the losses among the armed militias are high but their number is very high also, and fully purging the areas will take some time.
