Syrian government forces have killed scores of terrorists in attacks on Daesh and Jabhat al-Nusra positions in Damascus and in eastern Syria, reported Iran's news agency FARS.

Daesh (ISIL/ISIS) and Jabhat al-Nusra terrorists have come under heavy attack from the Syrian Army and allied forces in recent days, Iran's Fars News reported on Friday.

Dozens of Jabhat al-Nusra militants were killed in assaults on their positions in eastern Damascus, and the Liwa Fajr al-Ummah jihadi group were attacked at their command center in the northeast of Damascus.

"Several explosions occurred as a result of the army attack, which left many terrorists dead or wounded,' Syrian Army sources told Fars.

'The terrorist groups had stored a large volume of ammunition inside the site, and the first explosion caused the other explosions in the depot."

In the city of Deir Azzur in eastern Syria, several Daesh terrorists were killed by mortar attacks and airstrikes on their positions by the Syrian security forces.

"The Syrian Army targeted the ISIL terrorists' gatherings in al-Jurah and al-Rasafah districts in the Southeastern outskirts of Deir Ezzur city, claiming the lives of several militants,' said army sources.

'The ISIL terrorists left behind their dead and injured members and retreated forces."
