The Syrian army continues its military campaign against foreign-backed insurgents across the country.

Heavy fighting is underway north of the town of Mleiha in the countryside outside Damascus. Syrian troops discovered a tunnel there that stretches from the town of Duma to Adra. The tunnel was used by militants to transport weapons and as a hiding place. On August 14, Syrian troops recaptured Mleiha, which had been held by the militants for more than a year. The town is on the edge of the eastern region of Ghouta, near the capital’s international airport.
