(FNA)- The Syrian troops restored security and stability to al-Dab’a village in al-Qusseir outskirts in Homs province.
The army units destroyed the last insurgents’ dens and gatherings in al-Dab’a village and restored security and stability to the area, an official source told the Syrian Arab News Agency.
The source added that the army killed a large number of rebels and dismantled a lot of explosive devices planted by the antigovernment fighters on the main roads and inside city buildings.
Meantime, the Syrian troops targeted several tunnels used by the rebel groups, killing all rebels hidden there.
The army units also killed and wounded scores of the rebels attempting to escape from the Eastern Bouiyda to the Western al-Dmayna.
The Syrian armed forces also seized full control of al-Khalidiyeh village in Homs province.
Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011 with organized attacks by well-armed gangs and terrorists against Syrian forces and civilians being reported across the country.
The US and its western and regional allies have long sought to topple Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his ruling system. Media reports said that the Syrian rebels and terrorist groups have received significantly more and better weapons, a crime paid for by the Persian Gulf Arab states and coordinated by the United States.
The US daily, Washington Post, reported in May 2012 that the Syrian rebels and terrorist groups battling Assad’s government have received significantly more and better weapons in recent weeks, a crime paid for by the Persian Gulf Arab states and coordinated by the United States.
The newspaper, quoting opposition activists and US and foreign officials, reported that Obama administration officials emphasized the administration has expanded contacts with opposition military forces to provide the Persian Gulf nations with assessments of rebel credibility and command-and-control infrastructure.
Opposition activists who several months ago said the rebels were running out of ammunition said last May that the flow of weapons – most bought on the black market in neighboring countries or from elements of the Syrian military in the past – has significantly increased after a decision by Saudi Arabia, Qatar and other Persian Gulf states to provide millions of dollars in funding each month.
