Syrian Army Continues Battle near Damascus

Damascus, October 1 (RHC)-- The Syrian army continues to fight foreign-backed mercenaries near a refugee camp outside the capital Damascus and inflicts a number of losses.

According to Press TV, the Syrian soldiers as well as Palestinian volunteer fighters were engaged in heavy battles against the foreign-backed rebels near the Yarmouk Palestinian refugee camp.

The Syrian forces have been advancing towards a pivotal square at the camp. The report says that the Yarmouk camp is home to the largest Palestinian refugee community in Syria. The camp turned into a flashpoint area in Damascus when unrest broke out in the Arab country in 2011.

Reports indicate that Western powers and their regional allies -- especially Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey -- are supporting the mercenaries operating inside the country.
