Syrian government forces have killed at least 10 Daesh terrorists during operations in the country's eastern province of Dayr al-Zawr.

According to military sources, the terrorists were killed on Sunday by Syrian troops in a series of operations in Dayr al-Zawr's al-Erifi neighborhood and its surrounding areas, in which a large amount of the militants' equipment was also destroyed.

Elsewhere in the country, Syrian forces targeted fortifications belonging to the Jabhat Fateh al-Sham terrorist group in the southern province of Dara'a.

During the operations, a terrorist military command center was destroyed and a large number of terrorists were killed or severely injured in the city of al-Tiha.

Several more terrorists were also killed and their weapons destroyed or confiscated in the province's Daraa al-Balad and al-Karak neighborhoods.

In the western province of Homs, military troops retook the strategic mountain of Abu al-Douhor, which overlooks the Abu Kala Dam and Wadi al-Haso, from Daesh terrorists. In the operations heavy losses were inflicted on the terrorists.

Syria has been fighting different foreign-sponsored militant and terrorist groups since March 2011. UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura estimated last August that more than 400,000 people had been killed in the crisis until then.
