(Zaman Al Wasl)- At least 117 regime troops from northwestern Hama province killed in March by rebels and Daesh, pro-regime news feeds said.

Most of the slain fighters were killed in eastern and southern suburbs of Damascus. 

The regime army backed by Russia launched on March 18 one the war deadliest offensives on rebel-held enclave of Damascus, killing more than 1600 people.

Rebels who showed fierce resistance had killed dozens of regime forces before laying down arms and being evacuated to the   northern province of Idlib.

 Daesh also had killed dozens of fighters in the southern neighborhood of al-Qadam in a surprise attack two weeks ago.

The death toll included 16 officers.
  
In Tartus, 52 regime troops and allied militants from coastal province killed by rebels in March, pro-regime news feeds said.

More than 119,000 pro-regime forces have been killed, including 62,000 troops, tens of thousands of loyalist militiamen, and 1,556 fighters from Hezbollah, according to an estimate by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

The Alawites-dominated areas are still the main manpower supply for Bashar al-Assad's regime. The mourning posters and statements have been sweeping the streets and social media pages.

More than 470,000 people have been killed and 12 millions have been driven from their homes since Syria's revolution erupted in 2011.
