The Syrian army has cut a supply route used by terrorists in the Eastern Ghouta region of Damascus, wresting control of a nearby area in their push against foreign-backed militants.

The main Eastern Ghouta road was disconnected by the Syrian forces, who also managed to retake Wadi al-Dahab neighborhood in Homs Province, the Lebanese al-Mayadeen TV channel reported on Tuesday.

The Syrian troops further cut the al-Kastillio line, the only supply path used by militants in the eastern parts of the northern Aleppo Province.

The developments mark the latest in a string of victories over Takfiri elements wreaking havoc in Syria.

The Syrian military has vowed to press ahead with its counter-terror operations and drive terrorists out of their major strongholds.

Syria has been gripped by foreign-backed militancy since March 2011. Damascus says Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Qatar are the main supporters of the militants fighting the government forces.

United Nations Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura estimates that over 400,000 people have been killed in the Syrian crisis.
