Syria army retakes Christian town of Sadad

leave a comment »

The Syrian army has taken back control of the ancient Christian town of Sadad from al-Qaeda-linked militants operating inside the Arab country.

On Monday, state news agency, SANA, quoted an unnamed official source as saying that the military “restored security and stability” to the town of Sadad, north of the Syrian capital, Damascus.

The development comes after a week of clashes in the town.

“Pursuing terrorists in the farms surrounding Sadad still continues” the source added.

Militants from the al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front had recently captured key areas of the Christian town, including a checkpoint that gave them control of the western part.

The fighting in the town forced many people to flee to the nearby city of Homs or remain trapped in their houses.
