DAMASCUS (Press Shia) – Hundreds of Syrian protesters took to the streets of Qudsaya, a town northwest of Damascus, to condemn Takfiri terrorists after they violated a recent truce agreement in the war-torn Arab country.

According to Press Shia dispatches, dozens of the residents held massive rallies in Qudsaya on Friday after being targeted by foreign-backed terrorist groups in the area.

On September 28, the Syrian army was redeployed to the town, after armed groups violated the US-Russia brokered ceasefire there.

The report added that the army is continuing to make advances in the region and is resolved to clear the area of the Takfiri terrorists.

This is while representatives of a number of armed groups and the Syrian government in the district have reached an agreement to stop fighting.

Syria has been gripped by civil war since March 2011 with various terrorist groups, including Daesh (also known as ISIS or ISIL), currently controlling parts of it.

According to a report by the Syrian Center for Policy Research, the conflict has claimed the lives of over 470,000 people, injured 1.9 million others, and displaced nearly half of the country’s pre-war population of about 23 million within or beyond its borders.
