Syrian troops have gained more ground in their battle against foreign-sponsored militants by establishing full control on more towns across the country.
Syria army on Monday cleared Ish al-Warwar and al-Haidariya towns in the northern countryside of al-Qseir in Homs province.

In the city of Homs, the army continued clashes with foreign-backed militants in Bab Hud neighborhood and routed militants in the area.

According to military sources, Syrian soldiers devastated terrorists dens in the villages of Saison, al-Shebraq, Jamleh, al-Nafe'a, Sahm al-Golan, al-Shajara, Koieh, in the countryside of Dara'a, killing and wounding a number of terrorists.

Army units also destroyed militant hideouts in Salma, Beit Hleibyeh and al-Tuffahyeh villages in Lattakia countryside.

With reports of the UN Security Council plan to blacklist al-Qaeda-linked Syrian militant group, al-Nusra Front, financial support for the foreign backed fighters is dwindling giving government soldiers the advantage in the two-year old conflict.

Turmoil has gripped Syria since March 2011, and many people, including large numbers of Syrian security forces, have been killed in the unrest.
