The Syrian Army has killed several foreign-sponsored militants, and confiscated a large cache of weapons and ammunition from terrorists in Damascus suburbs. Syrian government forces launched attacks against militants in Irbin, Zamalka, Harasta, Adra, al-Ghouta and Douma farms on Sunday and killed a large number of them, Press TV reported with a link to the official SANA news agency.

The forces also rendered ineffective large supplies of arms, ammunition, and explosives, held by the militants in their hideouts.

In addition, the Syrian armed forces attacked terrorists and confiscated their weapons, including heavy machineguns, rifles and ammunition.

Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011. Many people, including large numbers of Army and security personnel, have been killed in the violence.

The Syrian government has said that the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country, and that a very large number of the militants operating in the country are foreign nationals.

Several international human rights organizations have accused foreign-sponsored militants of committing war crimes.
