The Syrian Army troops blocked terrorists' move in heavy fighting in Eastern Ghouta on Wednesday.

The army soldiers warded off terrorists' offensive on their positions in Wadi (desert) Ein Terma, killing over five militants and wounding several others.

In the meantime, the Syrian warplanes bombed terrorists' centers in the town of al-Shifouniyeh and surrounding areas of the town of al-Hamouriyeh.
