180 regime forces killed by Daesh, Tahrir al-Sham in southern Damascus: reports
 (Zaman Al Wasl)- At least 180 regime troops and allied militants have been killed by Daesh and former al-Qaeda group in the southern neighborhoods of Damascus since the clashes erupted in April, pro-regime media outlets said Saturday.

Regime forces have been pounding Daesh and Tahrir la-Sham for weeks in the Al-Hajar al-Aswad district and Yarmouk Palestinian refugee camp.

The militant groups showed fierce resistance as death toll included 34 officers mostly from the coastal region.

More than 125,000 pro-regime forces have been killed, according to local monitoring groups.

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.

On Thursday, state-run media said last batch of rebels had left towns of Babila, Beit Sahm and Yalda to Turkish-held areas in northern Syria.

Fierce offensives and evacuation deals have helped Bashar Assad's military wrestle back control of much of Syria, with support from Russia and Iran.

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