Syria's President Bashar al-Assad attended Adha prayer in Damascus on Sunday (August 11) accompanied by Syrian Prime Minister Imad Khamis and Syria's Mufti Ahmad Badr al-Din al-Hassoun.

 

Assad prayed in al-Afram mosque in Muhajirin district in Damascus.

 

Syrian government forces have seized ground from insurgents in northwestern Syria, sources on both sides said on Thursday (August 8), building on advances since the military declared an end to a brief ceasefire earlier this week.

 

Assad's side has struggled to make significant gains in more than three months of military operations in the northwest, the last major foothold of rebel groups in Syria.

 

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which monitors the eight-year-old conflict, said the advances by Assad's side over the last few days were its most significant since June, noting that the army was closing in on three rebel-held towns.
