A special operation to flush out rebel fighters holed up in the eastern suburbs of Damascus will be over within the next few days, Syrian military officials said on Tuesday.
Fighting continues in two villages outside the capital where a number of terrorists have either been killed or taken prisoner and several explosives-laden cars found.
And still, the situation is gradually getting back to normal with local residents returning home.
In Aleppo, the government forces have seized commanding heights overlooking the country’s second city in what military officials see as a “turning point in the battle for Aleppo.”
