The Syrian army killed several influential figures of rebel groups, including the most wanted sniper, in Reef (outskirts of) Damascus on Saturday.
The army killed Loay al-Nemr, the terrorists’ notorious sniper and also Arafat Obeid, a spokesman of the Horr terrorist network, affiliated to the so-called Free Syrian Army, in Duma town of Reef Damascus today.
The Syrian army also killed 13 armed rebels in Arbin, Seqba and Shifooneh towns in Reef Damascus today. The army also destroyed several vehicles of terrorists.
Meantime, the army repelled a terrorists attack on a brick factory in Reef Idlib, and killed 70 terrorists in heavy clashes and destroyed three DshK-equipped vehicles and a mortar-launcher.
Terrorists have tried hard in the last few months to make Syrian cities unsafe, specially for citizens, but the army has purged them from most neighborhoods and districts, killed hundreds of them and arrested many more.
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.
Hundreds of people, including members of the security forces, have been killed, when some protest rallies turned into armed clashes.
The government blames outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorist groups for the deaths, stressing that the unrest is being orchestrated from abroad.
