The Syrian Army and the country's popular forces, backed by Russian airstrikes, have continued their advance, inflicting heavy losses on the terrorist groups in the country's key provinces, Iranian media wrote on Wednesday.

Over the past 24 hours the Syrian Air Force has attacked and destroyed the terrorists' positions in Lattakia, Homs, Damascus, Deir Ezzur, Aleppo, Dara'a and Hama provinces, Fars news agency reported.

On Tuesday the government forces stormed a terrorist concentration center in Dara'a al-Balad leaving many militants dead and causing serious damage to their weapons and military equipment.

In Hama province, Syrian Army troops stormed a number of enemy strongholds, the agency reported, citing military sources in the area.

"Concentration centers of Ahrar al-Sham terrorist group near Atshan village in the northern part of Hama were massively attacked by the Syrian forces, leaving at least eight terrorists dead and wounding ten others,' the sources said.

In Aleppo province, Syrian fighter jets pounded a number of terrorist gathering centers in the town of Manbaj in the eastern part of the region.

In the meantime, the Syrian Army's artillery hit the military positions of the terrorists in the village of Mansoura in the eastern part of the city of Aleppo, the agency reported.

Syrian government forces have recently been making rapid advances against the terrorists in several parts of the country.

The advances of the Syrian government forces against Daesh and other terrorist groups have been enhanced by the air cover provided by Russia, which began on September 30 at the request of the Damascus government.
