Over 300 Al-Qaeda Militants Killed in Eastern Syria

Politics - The Syrian army killed hundreds of Al-Qaeda terrorists and injured hundreds more in heavy clashes in Deir Ezzur countryside.

More than 300 Salafi-Jihadist militants have been killed and over 400 others wounded in heavy clashes with the Syrian army near Deir Ezzur airport and Al-Jofrah village in Eastern Syria.

The clashes are still underway between the Syrian army and the militants of the Al-Nusra Front and Jeish al-Islam.

The conflict in Syria started in March 2011, when sporadic pro-reform protests turned into a massive insurgency following the intervention of western and regional states.

The unrest, which took in terrorist groups from across Europe, the Middle-East and North Africa, has transpired as one of the bloodiest conflicts in recent history.

As the foreign-backed insurgency in Syria continues without an end in sight, the US government has boosted its political and military support to Takfiri extremists.

Washington has remained indifferent to warnings by Russia and other world powers about the consequences of arming militant groups.
