Control was also established over Zaqaqiyeh Khalil Mountain, located 6 km east of Al Bardeh area and Al Bassiri village, located 8 km south of Al Bardeh area.
Dozens of ISIS terrorists were killed during operations, in addition to destruction of larger quantities of equipment, weapons and ammunition stockpiles.
Engineering units of the Syrian Army have already been dispatched to the newly liberated area and are currently dismantling explosive device and mines, left over by ISIS terrorists.
Army units are also pursuing the remaining terrorists who are running towards the region of Al Badia.
Meanwhile, Syrian forces discovered US and Israeli-made weapons and equipment, among the things that showed up while conducting searches in the district of Al Waar in Homs city.
US-made LAWs, Israeli mortar shells, Cobra and B10 missiles were found, in addition to Katyusha rockets, RPG rounds, rocket launchers, protective masks, binoculars, sniper rifles, automatic rifles and large quantities of ammunition.
However, earlier this year, a ceasefire agreement came in power, according to which, all terrorists and their family members had to leave the district and head towards the jihadist-occupied areas in eastern Aleppo countryside and Idleb.
Just this week, the very last terrorists left Al Waar. The authorities have already declared control of the area and maintenance work has already started.
