Syrian army kills terrorists who committed recent massacre

Damascus, Feb 21 (Prensa Latina) The Syrian army carried out a large-scale operation in the eastern Syrian desert during which they eliminated a terrorist group responsible for the murder of dozens of civilians.

According to military sources quoted by the al-Watan daily, a night operation south of the desert town of Al-Sukhna, 300 kilometers northeast of the capital, ended with the neutralization of dozens of jihadists from the Islamic State (Daesh).

The sources reported that the military seized ammunition, military equipment, telecommunication devices and 12 rifles, and recovered two trucks that the radicals had stolen from civilians.

At least 68 people lost their lives last Friday in an attack by Daesh extremists in Al-Sukhna, while another four people died in an attack in Palmyra on the 12th of this month.

Attacks by the Islamic State are increasing in the Al-Badieh desert. According to complaints from Damascus, the members of the faction receive logistical support, protection and intelligence information from the US military in the Tanef area, in the east of the country.

According to analysts, Daesh has resorted, since its defeat in 2018, to gang warfare and attacks based on clear intelligence instructions to wear down Syrian troops and their allies.
