Pro-Assad supporters held a rally to welcome the army`s success.
Meanwhile, fights continue in Damascus, Anadan, Dumar and other Syria towns.
Syrian government troops have launched a successful counter-attack on militants in Aleppo, the country’s second largest city. To check the advance of armed opposition reinforcements on Aleppo, government forces had to use air strikes.
Aviation is the only means of suppressing militants in the oil-and-gas rich eastern province of Deir ez-Zor where they control half of the territory. There have been reports of continuing clashes on the southern outskirts of Damascus.
More than 40 opposition fighters have been killed by airstrikes and artillery fire as the Syrian forces are intensifying their advance on rebel-held parts of the capital Damascus. The government forces have also struck out at rebel positions in the country’s northern capital Aleppo.
A UN coordination bureau will soon open in Damascus to feature a number of military advisers, human rights experts and representatives of humanitarian organizations.
