The Syrian army has achieved more success in its operations against militants in the western city of Homs.
Army units on Friday discovered and dismantled three explosive charges planted by militants in the vicinity of Homs.
The explosives weighed between 20 and 40 kilograms and were set to be detonated wirelessly.
This came after militants were forced to agree to a ceasefire with the government to evacuate the city.
Meanwhile, in Damascus Countryside, Syrian forces still have control of al-Dmeir airport. Militants had earlier claimed that they had taken control of the airport.
Press TV’s exclusive footage shows aviation activities are normal at the airport and security is being provided by the Syrian army.
Syria has been the scene of a deadly turmoil since March 2011. Reports say over 150,000 people have so far been killed and millions of others displaced because of the foreign-backed militancy plaguing the country.
