Syrian troops drive militants out of several areas

The Syrian Army has managed to drive foreign-backed militants out of different locations in Syria.

The militants were repelled in the northern city of Aleppo and a suburb of Damascus on Wednesday.

The Syrian forces managed to destroy several militant bases in Aleppo and carried out operations against a number of militants’ hideouts around the capital.

Earlier in the day, the Syrian Foreign Ministry called on the United Nations to condemn the terrorist attacks across the country, blaming the foreign-sponsored militants for the violence in the Arab country.

Syria has been experiencing unrest since mid-March 2011. Many people, including large numbers of security personnel, have been killed in the violence.

The Syrian government says the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country, and there are reports that a very large number of the militants fighting the Syrian government are foreign nationals. 

And several international human rights organizations have accused the foreign-sponsored militants of committing war crimes.
