Al-QusayrThe Syrian Army’s operations in Al-Qusayr city in Homs started after it waged air raids and shells at militants’ bases in the area late Saturday.

In this context, sources had stated earlier this week that the Syrian Air Forces had dropped leaflets over the city, demanding civilians to evacuate the area and militants to drop their arms and surrender, indicating that a large number did actually surrender while others escaped into deeper areas in Homs.

On another hand, Al-Mayadeen reported that the Syrian Army had taken control over Barza in Damascus, and succeeded in killing militia field commanders “Abu Sufian” and “Abu Musab”.

In parallel, Syrian news agency SANA reported that the Army had confiscated an Israeli manufactured missile, and large numbers of machine guns and ammunitions in the hands of an armed group that was terrorizing and cutting the road of Homs-Tadmor.
