The Syrian army restored security to Qaboun industrial district in the Northern suburbs of capital Damascus. Following days of fierce clashes near capital, the army has successfully taken Qaboun under complete control, the Syrian TV reported. Qaboun was one of the main battlefields between insurgents and Syrian soldiers. Army operations in Qaboun were more complicated due to the congested texture of its residential areas and presence of many civilians who were threatened by extremist militants to be used as human shields.
