Syrian Army has retaken control over the town of al - Daba ' a in Homs Province, a day after they fully cleared the strategic border town of al - Qusayr from terrorists and militant groups.

On Thursday, Syrian troops liberated the town after fierce exchange of fire with the militants.

Syria’s state television reported on Wednesday that Syrian forces had regained full control of Qusayr following more than two weeks of fighting.

Many foreign - backed militants were killed or injured throughout the mop - up operations conducted by Syrian soldiers in the town.

The militants fled to farms and nearby villages. Reports indicate that peace and security have now been restored in the region.

During the Qusayr battle, Syrian soldiers could also free the Daba’a Airport which was occupied by militant groups.

Qusayr had been an important center and supply route for the militants fighting against the Damascus government, especially the terrorist al - Nusra Front.

In the past two months, the Syrian army has moved steadily against the terrorists in key battleground areas, making advances near the border with Lebanon and considerably lowering the threat to Damascus.
